Galveston County EMS taking over in Kemah

Alyssa Wilson, a paramedic with the Galveston County Health District, double checks equipment and supplies aboard an ambulance at Fire Station No. 1 in Galveston on Friday, Sept. 27, 2019. Wilson will be one of the paramedics covering the Kemah area when the county begins providing emergency medical service coverage there next month.

As several communities in the northeastern part of Galveston County begin the transition from private to county emergency services, at least some leaders in League City are watching the shift with keen interest.

Although League City doesn’t face the exact situation as its neighbors, the issues facing both private and public emergency service providers are much the same — rising costs and the constant struggle to collect on bills. And the question of who is best equipped to handle those challenges might be one county communities ask for the foreseeable future.
