By on October 14, 2011

FOX VALLEY—State Representative Kay Hatcher (R-Yorkville) is co-sponsoring a local hearing of the House Task Force on Emergency Medical Services Funding on Monday, Oct. 17, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Waubonsee Community College’s Sugar Grove Campus.

Local first responders will be able to present their funding, equipment and other needs directly to their representatives in the Illinois House.

House Resolution 230 created a 24-member bipartisan task force seeking to help EMS services in Illinois. The objective is to meet with and hear from the actual EMS providers to find out what’s working, what’s not working, and how funding and state support can be modified or improved.

The Task Force will provide a report of its findings to the General Assembly by Jan. 1, 2012.

The Task Force hearing is being co-hosted by Reps. Hatcher and Linda Chapa La Via (D-Aurora).
