Warren County EMS recently released its report for the previous quarter.
FEMA recently awarded Warren County EMS a grant of $191,992. The county is responsible for 10 percent of the costs, so the full grant will be for $172,793.
The money received in this grant will be used to purchase Stryker loading systems for the ambulances. These systems will lessen the possibility of injuries to EMS personnel by reducing the amount of weight lifted.
In June, July, and August, the Ambulance Service made a total of 1,640 runs. Of these, 1,313 were emergency responses or emergency transports. There were 164 responses to vehicle crashes over the quarter, with 80 of these in June.
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. In addition to standard emergency medical response, Warren County EMS also provides support for all Warren County fire departments during structure fires and provides emergency hospital-to-hospital patient transfers. The county currently has four EMS stations.
