12 Jan KMEG: Siouxland Paramedics now has a place of their very own
Siouxland Paramedics, an emergency ambulance provider for Sioux City, North Sioux City, and Western Plymouth County, is ringing in the new year with a move into their new headquarters. They’re out with the old from the former Terminal Drive location.
“This is a nice building,” said Bob Welte, the director. The building took four months of construction.
“This is our building. We own this building. We’re not going anywhere, we’re going to be here for a long time,” said Welte.
The new location is just off Interstate 29, on Dace Avenue. Though smaller than its former home, the new building includes much more: showers in both the men and women’s restroom, more sleeping quarters, and a full sized kitchen next to the lounge area.
But the greatest upgrade is easier access in order for them respond to emergency calls, which is a top priority for paramedics.
Welte said the central location is perfect, not only for them, but the community at large.
