A new three-year contract has been signed by the Amherst Fire District that will result in a higher level of service and an expanded role of the Amherst-based ambulance. This is a 3-way agreement between Portage County, the city of Stevens Point and the Amherst Fire District. On July 1, 2011 the Amherst based ambulance will be operating at a "intermediate" level,running with one paramedic and one advanced EMT on board during each 12-hour shift. This will allow the crews to administer pain medication and cardiac drugs. The Amherst ambulance has a 21 member roster, with 10 of them being at the paramedic level. The station is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with crews working 12 hour shifts.
