Warren County EMS recently released its quarterly report for Sep. 1 through Nov. 30.
Installation of the power loading systems for ambulances is nearing completion. FEMA grant funds were used to purchase the eight units from Stryker Medical.
These systems will lessen the possibility of injuries to EMS personnel by reducing the amount of weight lifted.
In September, October, and November, the Ambulance Service made a total of 1,644 runs, almost exactly the same number of runs made in the previous quarter. Of these, 1,182, or 72 percent, were emergency responses. There were 99 responses to vehicle crashes over the quarter, significantly down from the June, July, and August totals.
Warren County EMS is a government agency responsible for all 911 medical calls in Warren County, as well as vehicle extrication and other specialized rescue needs.

The county currently has four EMS stations. Brian Jennings is the director.
