Rock Island residents are hoping to have an EMS station located in their area. According to EMS director Brian Jennings, a petition is circulating in the Rock Island/ Campaign/ Midway area urging residents to sign a petition supporting a new EMS station in the upper eastern part of Warren County.Warren County currently has four EMS stations located on Magness Drive (Station 1), on Manchester Highway in Morrison (Station 2), on Old Smithville Highway (Station 3) and Highway 8 and Shellsford Road (Station 4).Jennings brought maps to a county Health and Welfare Committee meeting showing where ambulances have been dispatched in the last year. The majority of dots were located within the city of McMinnville with a high concentration in the Morrison and Centertown areas.A second map had dots representing each ambulance station in the county.
