February 22-- Two new ambulances arrived at Toombs County EMS this week. On hand to accept them were (l-r) EMS Director Raymond Carroll, Toombs County Commission Chairman Buddy West, Commissioner Louie Powell and County Manager Doug Eaves.
The County Manager reports the two ambulances cost $206,000 with $73,275 paid for by a grant from the Georgia Trauma Commission and the balance by Toombs County sales tax collections. He says the county has an active fleet of six ambulances. Of the two ambulances being retired by the new arrivals, one will be retained as a backup and the other will be disposed of as surplus property.
