Ambulance service to start Monday


American Medical Response will take over ambulance services for unincorpor­ated Shelby County, Arlington, Lakeland and Millington on Monday, replacing longtime provider Rural Metro.

AMR was awarded the $1.7 million, five-year contract in May.

The company will operate under a performanc­e-based system that incorporat­es some of the most innovative changes in Shelby County’s public safety to date, said Shelby County Fire Chief Clarence Cash.

The company has also invested in cutting-edge technology and spent $2.5 million locally on new ambulances.

AMR is based in Colorado and provides services in 40 states and the District of Columbia.
