    This week TEN HOLLISTON sick residents had to wait while paramedics from Ashland, Medway, Sherborn, Hopkinton came to help them. NINE waited to be transported to a hospital. I’m addition, to these very important health concerns the town LOST $13,000 in revenue. This is clearly a LOSE-LOSE situation.

    Hi Liz

    The Select Board has approved the Fire Chief moving toward ALS certification along with changes found in the MRI report (presentations and the report itself can be found here: https://www.townofholliston.us/select-board/pages/2021-2022-project-study-reports-information). The results of the changes will reduce the need for mutual aid from surrounding towns and generate additional revenue. Town Meeting in October has approved the first steps toward implementing the report.

    This is an ongoing process with multiple steps that take time.
