EMS looks to secure grant for trauma equipment
Dougherty County EMS is looking to receive an extra hand to secure vital equipment.
EMS Director Sam Allen approached county commissioners Monday about applying for a grant that would cover new trauma equipment.
The grant comes from the Georgia Trauma Care Network Commission and would be worth $12,892.56, with no local match required.
Allen said that money would go toward equipment like new backboards, splints and medic bags.
"This would be used every day, and it could be used on every call, but it's there and available for that next trauma call so we're there for whatever needs," he said.
Commissioners will officially vote on applying for the grant at their next meeting.
