County finally removes yellow jacket nest plaguing EMS station for weeks
Allergic EMT's were transferred; others forced to sleep on couch with 'do not open' sign on bedroom door
WINDSOR, S.C. — It's a pest most wouldn't want in their house, much less their bedroom.
But at Aiken County's EMS Station 7 behind Oakwood-Windsor Elementary, a nest of yellow jackets has been keeping EMT's and paramedics company. "It's really disgusting, not only as a council representative but also a taxpayer," says Aiken County Councilman Phil Napier.
Last week, an anonymous Aiken County EMS worker sent News 12 a picture from inside Station 7. The photo shows a towel stuffed under the door to prevent the yellow jackets from entering the rest of the building. On the door itself, a sign reads, "Do not open. Yellow jacket nest in wall."
