(KSL News) If you need an ambulance in Millard County, you may have to wait for quite some time because there's a major shortage of volunteer emergency medical technicians.
The Deseret Morning News reports there is no back-up crew in the event of more than one emergency. That means the nearest help could be 20 to 45 minutes away.
The Millard County Sheriff says he's asked church and community groups for help and has even taken out ads in the local newspaper.
