A recent ruling from the State Attorney General, requested by the Medical Center Board of Directors, stated that volunteer ambulance attendants are not protected by the Good Samaritan Act in case of lawsuit. Del. Billy B. Burke said he would try to clarify the issue by contacting the Attorney General or by drafting new legislation providing volunteer EMT's with immunity from liability. Gilmer County recently received' a second new ambulance through the Governor's Highway Safety Administration, bringing to a total of three the ambulances serving emergency services needs here. The fledgling service has been operating on a minimum budget since it was changed from a privately run service in December, 1971. and is lacking organization and equipment. The new ambulance service here, as in many counties in West Virginia is in the process of reorganization and upgrading its capabilities.
