Monday night, Lake Waccamaw Mayor Daniel Hilburn asked Columbus County Commissioners to opt out of a contract it has with the Lake Waccamaw Auxiliary for emergency ambulance services. Hilburn told commissioners the town was making progress on reestablishing its fire department and is willing to start a rescue squad that was at intermediate level that in time could provide paramedic level service. Doing so would make it only the second rescue squad in the county credentialed to provide paramedic level (the highest level of service). See more in Thursday’s News Reporter.
