Officials Call Special Meeting: No Petersburg Ambulance

There is no ambulance for the city of Petersburg. There hasn't been since November 21st when state regulators shut down the Petersburg service for safety and health reasons. 

For now, Abernathy which is 19 miiles away is providing EMS service to Petersburg.   The Plainview Daily Herald says the Hale County Commissioners meet Friday at 9 a.m. in special session to talk about the situation. One idea is spread that responsibility between Abernathy and Hale Center.  Hale Center is 29 miles driving distance from Petersburg.
