With a new emergency services headquarters on the horizon, selectmen have allowed the ambulance service to settle an old debt with the town.


West Tisbury selectmen agreed last week to back a shared funding concept for a new Tri-town ambulance headquarters in Chilmark.


A property abutting the town hall could become the new headquarters for Tri-Town ambulance, if voters agree at the annual town meeting next spring.


The ambulance service which provides EMS to the three up-Island towns is undergoing a change in leadership. Tri-Town chief Paul (Zeke) Wilkins has stepped down following a period of medical leave, while deputy chief Ben Retmier has been named acting chief.


Picking up on efforts that began more than a decade ago, a committee in Chilmark is taking another stab at finding a location for a new fire station.
EMT Kristina West, pictured here with Tri-Town ambulance chief Zeke Wilkins and Aquinnah police chief Randhi Belain, was honored for her role in saving the life of Christopher McCloud.
Although blue lights flashed at the Aquinnah police and fire station Saturday afternoon, there was no emergency. At Aquinnah's first ever public safety day, the biggest concern was whether the hamburger supply was low.
