Air Methods, MVFRD
negotiate to reopen base

The Milton Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department’s board of directors are negotiating with representatives of Air Methods Kentucky to reactivate the medical helicopter base in Trimble County.
Formerly StatCare, Air Methods Kentucky operates 10 helicopter ambulances and one fixed-wing ambulance.
The service cut back its local operation in 2008 because it lacked the employees needed to staff te base around the clock. Operations were reduced to 6 a.m. to 
10 p.m. daily and later closed, except for occasional helicopter visits, board member and former Chief Ronnie Barnes said.
