Three Local Ambulance Agencies Planning to Merge

Rochester NY, March 17, 2016 -- Three local ambulance agencies -- Chili Volunteer Ambulance Service, Inc. (CVAS), Henrietta Volunteer Ambulance Service, Inc. (HVA) and the Village of Scottsville Rescue Squad have announced plans to merge into one agency. The governing Boards of each agencyhave individually voted to move forward with the merger proceedings. The process is expected to becompleted by the fourth quarter of 2016. Through the merger, each agency will retain their individual operating identity but will function under a newly formed entity. The ambulance agencies have been intalks since early 2014 to discuss the potential for a successful merger.

There is a national trend with regard to combining emergency medical resources within communities. As the healthcare and public safety landscapes continue to evolve, the three agencies saw a clear opportunity to combine resources and fortify them into one. The new company -- which has yet to beformally named -- will ensure the long-term viability of a community-based ambulance service well into the future. The process that has been undertaken can serve as a model for other emergency services to combine resources and stabilize costs
