NEWPORT — Mike Paradis, executive director of Newport Ambulance, wants things to slow down.

Since news of Derby Line Ambulance’s difficulties and probable demise has spread, many towns in northern Orleans County have been contacting Mr. Paradis to see if his organization can provide services in their communities.

Derby and Charleston have already signed up with Newport. Derby needed to replace the services previously provided by the Derby Line squad.

Charleston decided to move from relying on Lyndon Rescue, which served the town from its garage in nearby Island Pond.

For Mr. Paradis and other towns in the area these changes are like playing a board game with squares that change every time someone makes a move.
