The town of Franconia has to decide how to manage its ambulance service — merge its Life Squad with Franconia Fire and staff it with full- and part-time cross-trained personnel or continue a contract with Littleton EMS until the Franconia Life Squad is again fully operational.
Earlier in the year, Franconia entered into a temporary per-call contract with Littleton EMS after its Life Squad was put on pause for lack of qualified staff.
Franconia, like other communities, has struggled to maintain a sufficient number of call company members.
On Dec. 12, the Franconia Select Board held a public hearing to address its two options. Its Select Board will make a recommendation at a later date.
