HOWELL, MICHIGAN

The courthouse was designed by Alfred E French and completed in 1890 and is an historical landmark. It is so cozy to sit on lawn in summer and read a book or people watch.

Howell is the county seat of Livingston County. As of 2010 the population was around 9500 people. Howell is home to many festivals celebrated through the year. Most notably, the Michigan Challenge Balloonfest, Christmas Parade is a Ho, Ho Ho, and the Melon Festival. The court house to the left is a beautiful building. Most people who have to go to court will be coming to Howell. It is where the jail is too.

This town has really changed from the farmers town it once was.

This is a beautiful cemetary beside Thompson Lake in downtown Howell. Beautiful view's and place to swim and eat a picnic lunch. The picture to the left is Thompson Lake, a view from my car.

We are extremely blessed to have our EMS, (Emergency Medical Service), of Livingston County. Jeff Boyd, Director since 1991 has extreme credentials and experience to be in charge of this service we all hope we never need.

Jeff grew up in Stockbridge, Mi and volunteered in the ambulance service starting in high school from age 16 thru 18, after he completed First Aid and CPR classes. While in college he became an EMT, (Emergency Medical Technician) and in 1976-1979 worked with the Livingston County Ambulance service.

Jeff continued on with his schooling and became a paramedic in 1977. Because our county did not have paramedics he left Livingston County and worked in the Midland, Saginaw area until 1983. In that same year, he moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico and was an EMS Training Coordinator until moving back in 1986.

Jeff has always loved taking care of and helping people. As Director he is always working to improve the care and response time to the citizens. He has implemented many of the protocols for paramedics across the State of Michigan.

Jeff has been there every step of the way as Director starting with the first of five built and owned substations in Livingston County.  Brighton was the first built substation in 1994. Next came Hartland and Hamburg in 1998, Genoa Township in 2000 and Howell in 2012. At the  Howell station, they also lease space to the

University of Michigan for their helicopter and patient-organ transplant  Fixed Wing Jet Survivor Flights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Livingston County there are 8 Fire and 11 Police Departments. Our EMS covers all 584 square miles. They average sixty-five 911 calls a day and approximately 22,000 calls a year. There are five 24 hour ambulances that work 24-hour shifts and six ambulances that run 12-hour shifts.

Jeff said: “Two o’clock in the afternoon is our busiest time. We  have 7 staffed and operating ambulances at night and up to 12 operating by 2:00 p.m. All 5 stations have a spare ambulance in case of a disaster or if a mechanical failure occurs.’’ If you need help to get up from a non injury fall, EMS will come by and lift you back up on your feet.  

EMS is funded 1/3 by your tax millage and the rest is from fees collected for their services. An average charge for an ambulance is around $400.00-$500.00 per run. The average response time is nine minutes.

Jeff Boyd has been with Livingston County for almost 33 years and oversees the total operations which include 100 employees. I personally want to thank him and all the EMS employees who skillfully give service to all who are in need of help.
