Activities & events in Thurman
Thurman Emergency Medical Services is holding a public meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday Feb. 9 at their squad building to share ideas about how to keep their ambulance services operating in town. All are invited to attend and discuss solutions to the financial shortfall the squad is experiencing.
The Thurman Town Board is scheduled to hold a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 12 —and reportedly it should be quite an event, considering the widespread public interest in the future of emergency medical services in town. This issue has prompted a lot of discussion — particularly lately after it became clear that Thurman’s independent ambulance squad needs money to avoid shutting down.
