EMS buys ambulance
Nelson County EMS will get a nearly new ambulance and get rid of an old one.
On Tuesday the Nelson County Fiscal Court approved a bid for a 2015 Chevrolet diesel ambulance from Heartland Wheels Inc. for $99,900.
The truck has only 11,500 miles on it, according to EMS Director Joe Prewitt, and the agency will spend an additional $5,000 on it.
The county had budgeted $140,000 for it. The new ambulance is intended to replace one that “burned up,” Prewitt said.
