Bertie County to move forward with EMS program

Posted: Updated:
WINDSOR, N.C. - Bertie County commissioners agreed this week to move forward with a comprehensive EMS program.

Commissioners say the program would include a non-emergency transport service, which would generate extra revenue for the county and ease the burden on taxpayers.
     
Last month, Bertie County lost its EMS provider, First Med.
     
The company filed for bankruptcy, forcing Bertie County to file a state of emergency.
