PCAD closer to serving Windsor ambulance needs


The Pettis County Ambulance District may begin serving Windsor residents as soon as next month after the PCAD Board of Directors heard an update on the process during its regular meeting Tuesday.

In late December, PCAD entered into an agreement with the Windsor Ambulance District to take over emergency medical and transfer services until the WAD was ready. Talks about this agreement start in June after the Windsor ambulance services closed due to financial hardships and mismanagement.

PCAD Administrator Mike Gardner told the board all the necessary state and federal licensing measures had been completed, paving the way for ambulances services to begin in Windsor soon. In addition, the building that will house the PCAD crew working in Windsor should be purchased by the end of next week.

“We’re also working on hiring three new EMTs and three new paramedics, both for the Windsor location and Sedalia area,” he said. “Right now we’re still looking at an early to mid-February start date.”
