The current situation is turbulent to the risks related to immediate service provision by the EMS as it requires a greater response by the workforce. Expenses concerning material and supplies have been increased in the approved budget of 2011 by 4.1 percent to $237,000. The budget has seen a negative trend towards equipments and also cut costs on services and rentals. Equipments were restricted to a decrease of $340,100 by 25.6 percent and service and rents were lowered by 9.4 percent to $901,800. This allocation may bring some significant changes in cost control and the procured fund may be further utilized towards quality services and capital expansion. In the current budget contributions to capital were kept to zero percent i.e. no contribution whatsoever.
