If you’re experiencing an emergency, there’s no need to panic because Liberty Regional Emergency Medical Services has added two new ambulances to the fleet. Liberty Regional Medical Center and Liberty Regional EMS held a dedication for the two new ambulances Tuesday morning.
“I am very excited and very pleased to see how collaboration works in Liberty County,” Liberty County Board of Commissioner Chairman Donald Lovette said. “You never think of fire trucks, ambulances, and patrol vehicles until you need them. Again SPLOST has worked in our favor and we’re happy to see the ambulances here.”
According to Liberty County Administrator Joey Brown, each ambulance cost around $150,000 and was funded through the special-purpose local-option sales tax (SPLOST) and through general funds.
“These ambulances are very important especially for someone around my age,” City of Hinesville Mayor Allen Brown said. “It’s important to have them run and running fast to assist anyone needing medical services.”
Liberty Regional EMS Director Shawn Parker thanked the LCBOC, LRMC, SPLOST, and emergency crews when he spoke at the dedication. He also said not only is Liberty Regional EMS getting new ambulances, but also upgrading protocols and consistently learning new training.
