Spring, Texas – Upon the termination of Cypress Creek EMS’ (CCEMS) contract with Harris County Emergency Services District No. 11 (ESD 11), CCEMS was ordered to return hundreds of thousands of dollars in assets owned by ESD 11 taxpayers.
Nearly two weeks after the termination of the contract, ESD 11 has yet to receive Automated External Defibrillators, Radios, Automatic Stretcher Loaders, and many other items from CCEMS. Of the items that have been returned, most are in unusable and unrepairable condition.
CCEMS returned two supervisor vehicles to ESD 11 with what appears to be intentional damage. All of the emergency equipment, property of ESD 11 taxpayers, was ripped out and thrown into the backseats of the vehicles.
“The board is deeply disappointed in the condition of the taxpayer owned equipment that was returned to us by CCEMS. In addition to the fact that the returned equipment was severely damaged, CCEMS has failed to return many items on our asset list,” said Steve Williams, Commissioner of Harris County Emergency Services District No. 11.
The ESD 11 Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to withhold the remaining payment to CCEMS during the September 9, 2021 meeting.
