    BIXBY, Oklahoma –

    EMSA cut the ribbon on its new facility in Bixby Monday.

    It’s a deployment hub, where five ambulances are housed.

    Paramedics report to work at the hub, get their ambulance assignment, and then fan out across the south side.

    The goal is a faster response in the South Tulsa, Bixby and Jenks areas.

    “If you look at the difference in the last ten years, there’s a significant population growth in this area, so hence, with that, of course, the higher 911 call volume,” said John Peterson, with Paramedics Plus.

    There’s been a dedicated ambulance service in Bixby since April.

    The new hub started stocking and maintaining ambulances for the area last month.
