Maui and Moloka'i may get more ambulance service

Two bills (HB 2382 and HB 2789), introduced by Rep. Mele Carroll, to fund increased ambulance service in Haiku, Maui and Moloka'i have been combined with several other health measures that seek appropriation and will be heard in Finance as HB 2888 HD1.

Haiku lacks its own ambulance station and must rely on emergency care from towns nearly 90 minutes away, and Moloka'i needs staff to support a second ambulance station.

Read news release here.

UPDATE (3/6/08): HB 2888 HD2 passed out of the House and moved to the Senate for further consideration.
