Ambulance Merger Agreement Moves Forward

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The passage of a new agreement between the Three Rivers Ambulance Authority and the Consolidated Communications Partnership could mean greater efficiency and better response times for ambulance dispatches.

The Consolidated Communications Partnership voted “yes” on a cooperative service agreement with the Three Rivers Ambulance Authority, allowing the agencies to share resources and office space.

According to the Journal Gazette, dispatchers with the TRAA would relocate to the emergency call center, located inside the Rousseau Centre in downtown Fort Wayne. Under the new agreement however, the TRAA and CCP would still remain two separate entities, including their own staff and budget.

The plan is expected to be approved by the end of December. That's when the TRAA can move into the Rousseau Centre.
