Do you already
Hallstead Boro Council took care of business in short order at their July 15 meeting; the mayor and some council members planned to attend a meeting being held at the same time in Great Bend Boro to discuss developments with the Hallstead-Great Bend Ambulance. As of the date of the meeting, the ambulance company had been denied renewal of their license to operate; a new application would need to be made.
"We will be back." With those defiant words, John Brant closed a meeting devoted to discussion of the precarious position of Great Bend-Hallstead Volunteer Ambulance Service (GBHVAS), of which he is president. Everyone who heard him was hoping he was right. But some still had serious doubts about the ability of the dwindling volunteer corps to right itself after recently losing its license. Whatever else happens, however, the residents of the communities served by the local team for over 50 years will not be without an ambulance to call on when needed.
