Iowa's rural EMS crisis examined on KWWL

Posted: Updated:

Small towns in Iowa have always relied on dedicated volunteers, when it comes to fighting local fires or transporting residents to area hospitals in a medical emergency. 

While that volunteerism continues, there is growing concern that Iowa is facing a rural EMS crisis. That crisis stems from concerns that the dedicated volunteers aren't always available to answer small town emergency calls.

Three guests helped high light the rural EMS crisis Sunday on The Steele Report on KWWL-TV. Here is a link to that program.
