A pair of towns partnered up to provide ambulance service.The Lincoln Fire Department is launching an EMS program, with the help of East Millinocket Fire. 12 surrounding towns will use their service. Penobscot Valley Hospital recently decided to end their ambulance program. Their coverage will stop on the 30th. It’s been a year long process to organize this merger. This was actually the first order of business that Lincoln’s incoming town manager Bill Lawrence signed off on. Fire fighters are calling it a big step forward for the town.
