EMS Advisory Board Recommendations on Enhancing EMS Service
The Floyd County EMS Advisory Board has been working to improve the EMS service within Floyd County. We are tasked with recommending and implementing improvements to the EMS Response and pre-hospital emergency medical care for Floyd County and its communities. EMS operates at the crossroads between Health Care, Public Health and Public Safety. The FCEMSAB has reviewed all RFP’s, studies, and proposals that have been given to the county thus far. After much research, we recommend that the current EMS contract needs to be revised to reflect the following items regardless of which path is taken by the Floyd County Commissioners.
