Bowie City Leaders Want to Cease EMS Services Outside City Limits

The city of Bowie is looking to scale back its ambulance services---ceasing calls outside of city limits.

Bowie Mayor Larry Slack submitted the letter of intent to the Montague county judge this week, stating the bowie EMS will no longer respond to calls outside of city limits.

Bowie EMS currently responds to all calls around the county.

City manager Ricky Tow says from October to January, the city lost a little over $300,000 on EMS service.

He adds the city only receives $30,000 a year from the county and has asked the county for more help to subsidize the loss.

"We're at a time for the city here where we have to stop some of the points of losing, and this is something that city has done for many years and now saying we can no longer financially do this," Tow said.

The decision will now be in the hands of Montague county commissioners to decide whether EMS service is worth paying more.
