Apex EMS to merge with Wake County

Posted March 19, 2011

— Wake County Emergency Medical Services will start providing care in Apex in July.

The Town of Apex requested that its EMS division be merged into the Wake County EMS for financial reasons that became clear as the town prepared its budget.

"Wake County (can) provide EMS service in a more economically efficient manner without any compromise in service," Dr. Brent Myers, medical director of Wake County EMS, said in a statement Friday.

All full-time Apex EMS workers will be offered jobs with Wake County.

    I think it to be a really sad day. One year ago today March 22, 2010 the Town of Apex took over Apex Emergency Medical Service, Inc. 40 years of hard work is gone in the snap of a finger. Good Bless the employees of Apex Emergency Medical Service and the dedication they gave to their community.
