911 Officials Ready in Case of Changes in Local Ambulance Service  
Several employees of Effingham Advanced Ambulance have left that firm within 
the last week, and most if not all have gone to work for Effingham City-County 
Ambulance Service. Effingham County ESDA Coordinator Russ Thomas, who chairs 
the Effingham County 911 Board, said emergency officials were monitoring the 
situation in light of reports that the employees left Advanced after their 
paychecks bounced. 
Ben Sullivan is one of those who left. Sullivan said that his paycheck from 
last week didn`t cash. He said he knew of other employees who had that problem 
in the past, and said it would only happen to him once. He was hired by 
City-County on Tuesday and starts work there tomorrow. 

City-County Operations Director Terry White said they would be able to "easily 
absorb" those hired between their three locations in Effingham, Altamont and 
Salem. He said most of those hired would work in Effingham County. White said, 
"we are prepared to handle any emergency or non-emergency calls in our venues". 

The Effingham County Board`s Public Safety Committee plans to meet at 8am 
Friday at the County Office Building to discuss the situation. 

(Additional info obtained by CIFN Advanced Ambulance will cease operations as 
of July 26th in Effingham Co.)
