Channel 8: Residents of north Riley County say EMS wait times are too long


The average response time for emergency medical services in the United States is less than 10 minutes, but the wait is much longer for those who live in the north end of Riley County. To make their voices heard, residents created a Facebook page and spoke to the county commission. Commissioners say a new ambulance station may come further north within a couple of years.
