University Medical Center has broken ground on its EMS Station One, reports KCBD 11.
The facility will be the home of an three-ambulance garage, EMS administration offices and the Communications Center.
The project, which has been in the works for two years, will cost $5,184,248. Two of those will be used for the two buildings, the dispatch center and EMS station. The dispatch center’s structure will be tornado resistant. The funds will also cover the cost of a fiber optic cable, new communications tower and an emergency generator.
