Ambulance transport in Hinesburg, VT is currently provided by a service over 20 minutes away and will cease in June 2020. Town officials are currently trying to decide whether to expand local first response to include ambulance transport or to contract with Richmond Rescue, which is a well-established 911 transport service in a nearby town. Through literature/budget reviews and interviews with involved community members, it is apparent that although an independent Hinesburg EMS may have shorter response times, its volunteer corps is insufficient to sustain a transport service. Richmond Rescue can provide a higher level of medical care at a lower cost and should be contracted to provide ambulance transport.
