Sturgis approves renewed contract with Lawrence County for ambulance service

STURGIS, S.D. – At their Monday night meeting, the city of Sturgis approved a contract renewal for the Sturgis Ambulance to provide service to portions of Lawrence County.

The city of Sturgis has had an agreement with neighboring Lawrence County for the past four years, that provides part of the county closest to Sturgis, access to their EMT services at a cost of approximately $1,200.

While Sturgis is not in Lawrence County, officials say that it’s more convenient for an ambulance from Sturgis to get to remote parts of the county, particularly the growing Boulder Canyon area.

City Manager Daniel Ainslie said that the county is able to provide some reimbursement for the services.


However, council president Kevin Forrester would like to further discuss this issue when the contract comes up for renewal.


The renewal was approved unanimously.
