Algoma District Services Administration Board is embarking upon a restructuring plan that could see ambulance services reduced in Hornepayne and Dubreuilville.

The Sault Star has learned the proposed plan, which requires a letter of agreement with the union, could ultimately reduce service from 24 hours a day to 16 hours a day in those communities. The 16 hours would have paramedics onsite for eight hours and on call for the other eight hours, documents obtained from The Sault Star state.

The remaining eight hours would result in the communities relying on ambulance coverage about one hour away.
