Petoskey Location web

Location of Petoskey EMS station approved; Eppler Road site selected

The location for the flagship station of Emmet County’s EMS operations has been approved by the Emmet County Board of Commissioners. On Thursday evening, Feb. 25, 2016, the Board held a special meeting to approve the purchase of an approximate 10-acre parcel on Eppler Road, south of the Sheridan Street intersection, on the road’s east side. The property is in Resort Township and near to both U.S. 31 and U.S. 131. “It has very good access to major intersections and roads that service Emmet County and it will provide us with rapid access for emergency response in high-density run volume areas,” said Larry Hansen, Emmet County EMS Director. “We feel this is the best of the available sites in the immediate Petoskey area, and we’re looking forward to getting started building this flagship public safety building.”


New Mackinaw EMS facility receives occupancy permit

The temporary occupancy permit for the Mackinaw City EMS station was granted in recent days and crews have started moving in equipment and furnishings. This building will house one crew and allow for a second crew to be housed when needed and as our run volume increases. Two ambulances will be kept in the facility, with the second being used as a back-up response vehicle. An open house is planned for mid-June; stay tuned for the date to be announced soon.
