Thanks to a community effort the ambulances will continue to run in Hale Center.
The contributor's billboard was revealed at a ceremony in Hale Center Saturday morning. The rural community raised more than $37,000 to support its emergency medical service.
"It's huge for the town. EMS has shut down three times in the last four years and money is always at the center of it and so right now the service is solvent. They have a good flow of money coming in to pay their wages but unfortunately there's not much left to do anything else," says Brian Keith Moon, the fundraiser coordinator.
Moon says it was important to raise the money because Hale Center is 20 minutes from the nearest hospital which is Covenant in Plainview.
