DE Communities Approve Ambulance Fee Increase

Posted: Updated:

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. - Emergency calls across Fenwick Island increased from 850 to 1,100 this year.

According to the Bethany Beach Volunteer Fire Company, which covers towns along the coast between the Maryland border and Indian River Inlet bridge, they are buying a third ambulance to help respond to the surge.

To help offset those costs, the communities reportedly approved an increase in the emergency medical service fee from $44 to $53, which will begin in January.

A fire chief with the company says they hope to have the ambulance by January 2014.
