Fla. county votes to add an ambulance, close 2 fire stations

The county will also hire six firefighters, after a study found that an additional emergency zone was needed

CAMDEN COUNTY, Fla. — Camden County will hire six new firefighters, add an ambulance and close two fire stations, all to carry out the recommendations of an independent efficiency study conducted last year.

The study by International City/County Management Association turned up some redundancies in fire coverage between Kingsland and the county while finding that a fourth emergency zone was needed to serve the south end of the county where 80 percent of the calls originate.

Tuesday night’s unanimous vote gives County Fire Rescue Chief Mark Crews $300,000 in personnel funding to make the changes.
