NFDL Fire Dept Now Providing Transfer Service

The North Fond du Lac Fire Department is now providing ambulance transportation for patients being released from either a hospital to a nursing home or to another hospital for additional specialty care services. Assistant Chief Eric Butler says, “With this new service, we will enhance the healthcare experience for patients by decreasing the wait time for transport, as well as opening up more hospital beds for new admissions.” The transport service will use the department’s backup ambulance and will not impact emergency 911 service in the village of North Fond du Lac or the surrounding townships covered by the primary ambulance.
