Life support rep meets with council

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - On Monday, the Chambersburg Borough Council hosted a representative of West Shore Advanced Life Support (ALS) to address whether the ALS provider is missing calls.

Changes made to staffing in 2006 favorably changed the numbers, Larry Roberts said.

"Based on the statistics we received from Franklin County (911), we maintained a 94.4 percent coverage," Roberts said.

The basic ambulance service in Chambersburg had 78.3 percent coverage, with the ALS provider picking up 100 percent of the basic service's missed calls, Roberts said.

The council considered developing its own ALS service, but nixed the proposal in February.

Council OKs bid for township land

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Chambersburg Borough Council on Monday accepted the only bid made on seven acres it offered for sale in Guilford Township, Pa.

The former WCBG property along Tower Road sold for $600,000 to Craig Nitterhouse.

The borough obtained the land in December 2004 for $590,000 and used funds from three sources, officials said.
