LYNDON—“Osage County EMS is now state licensed.
It’s official,” Brent Teter, chief executive officer
of TECHS Inc., told the Osage County commissioners Monday.
Teter was at the Dec. 5 meeting with four other staff members
to update commissioners on the company’s progress toward
providing the county’s ambulance services effective
Teter said the company’s steps since signing a contract
with the county in May have been to hire staff to serve Osage
County, set up training sessions for area first responders,
dispatchers and TECHS staff, locate ambulance stations in
the county, sign mutual aid agreements with surrounding counties,
and secure ambulances.
