Jason Beck, ambulance emergency service director for Oscoda County EMS, discusses the potential cost savings of having two propane ambulances in the county fleet as a cost-saving measure, during a meeting of the Oscoda County Commission Nov. 26.
Jason Beck, ambulance emergency service director for Oscoda County EMS, discusses the potential cost savings of having two propane ambulances in the county fleet as a cost-saving measure, during a meeting of the Oscoda County Commission Nov. 26.
Ambulance Emergency Service Director Jason Beck presented the proposal and bids from companies to the county commission to replace ambulances in the fleet with the propane vehicles.
Beck explained that he thought the county could save money on fuel costs by switching to ambulances that ran on propane. He hoped the switch would also balance the EMS budget and get it out of the red in the future.
He said the county could enter into a contract with an area propane provider and get a set cost for propane at roughly $2 a gallon. The day of the meeting diesel prices were up to almost $4 a gallon; gasoline was $3.39 at downtown Mio gas stations.
Beck said the propane engines - which could also run on gasoline if needed - would be very cost efficient.
As far as filling up the ambulances, EMTs would use a propane filling station that would be installed at no cost to the county at the county ambulance barn, Beck said. He said insurance to cover the pump would be $500 a year.
He said regardless of the county's decision the ambulance fleet would need replaced.
Beck said the vehicles ran on both gasoline and propane, and could simply be filled with gasoline for the drive.

According to EMS Director Jason ..., 5 Aug 2014 [cached]
According to EMS Director Jason Beck, the ambulances will be delivered to the county in June.
The ambulances run on gasoline and propane, as previously explained by Beck. Under the system, the engine initially starts with gasoline then warms the vehicle to a certain temperature. After that the vehicle's engine automatically switches fuels. If the tank runs out of propane, the engine automatically switches back to gasoline.
Beck wanted the county to switch to the ambulances because to propane is cheaper than diesel per gallon.
Beck said he could get propane at less than $2 a gallon if he contracted with an area company.
Earlier in December, Commissioner Robert Boerner, Grantner, Beck and the county's fleet mechanic, Rob Marsh, traveled to Benzie County to examine their operation of propane-powered buses.
Beck countered and said that because EMS was a government agency, it was exempt from paying fuel taxes. He said furthermore, the propane ambulances were actually $2,000 cheaper than the diesel models, which would save the county $12,000.
MIO - The Oscoda Emergency Medical ..., 5 Aug 2014 [cached]
MIO - The Oscoda Emergency Medical Services are on track to receive its propane ambulances by July, according to Director Jason Beck.
Beck gave the Oscoda County Board of Commissioners an update on the ambulances during a meeting April 22.
Late last year the commission voted to allow Beck to purchase two new propane-powered ambulances. They also approved funding remount existing ambulance equipment on two new chassis that run on gasoline engines. The cost would be nearly $570,000.
Beck originally proposed the purchase of the rigs arguing that propane would provide a substantial fuel cost savings per mile, as opposed to gasoline engines.
He told commissioners that a company was on track to get the ambulances to the county for operation this summer.
"We're on track for receiving our ambulances by the end of July," he said. "That is both for our remounts and the two propane ones. At the present time our first remount is expected to go out this week."
Beck said he was looking forward to having the propane ambulances in service and said it would help the service make money on ambulance runs for dialysis patients.
"The number is $150 a run, that is substantial," he said. "When we get the propane engine in place it will increase the payout with the gas mileage."
Beck told commissioners that plans for a propane filling station at the EMS building were underway as well. He said he was recently contacted by official with the U.S.
Beck then explained that there was some doubt that the county could partner with the Forest Service because they were a federal government agency, but officials were still working on perhaps partnering for a filling station.
"I am currently working on the paperwork to submit for a partner grant, but I am not expecting it to come through," Beck said.
Beck said Forest Service officials are also working to get a public filling station that can not only be used by both agencies, but also people who have propane vehicles, such as RVs, for use.
Discussion then proceeded to where on the property the propane filling station would be located. Commissioners voiced their concerns when Beck said the station could be located on the south side of the building in the station's current parking area.
Beck said he was assured by several propane companies that install the stations there is ample room in the parking area for the filling station, if it is going to be installed there.
