  • ER transition expected to be smooth at LAMC

    The transition to take over emergency services at the Los Alamos Medical Center from Healthfront in August is expected to be smooth.

    That was the assessment from an EmCare executive Wednesday after the announcement was made last week that LAMC was switching services from HealthFront to EmCare in August.

    “We were there approximately 10 years ago, so we are certainly familiar with the Los Alamos Medical Center,” said EmCare’s Vice President of Practice Development, David Copple. “We are not only familiar with Los Alamos, but we also have a number of contracts with other hospitals throughout the state.”

  • Fire probe continues

    The July 4 fire that destroyed the chapel at the New Beginnings Church still is under investigation.

    All three organizations are still in the process of conducting an investigation into the origin and cause of the fire located at 112 East Road.

    According to a LAFD press release, the fire is still classified as under investigation and information is still being gathered and processed.

    “The process of fire investigation is complex and takes time an

    resources to come to a conclusion of what took place before and during the event,” the release states.

  • Water leak detected at LAGC on Monday

    An underground pipe leak was found Monday near Los Alamos Golf Course and will need to be repaired.
    A main line that supplies water to the south side of LAGC was found to be leaking either near or underneath Diamond Drive, but the exact location isn’t yet known. The leak affects watering on holes 1-10 and 16-18.
    LAGC said it is watering those holes with a 1,000-gallon tanker borrowed from the county’s Parks department and the course will have a 3,000-gallon tanker from the Roads and Streets department at its disposal.
    A press release from LAGC warned, however, that the course, particularly the fairways, may show signs of stress until repair work is completed. Repair work is scheduled to begin this Monday.
