Va. EMS hires 6 firefighter-medics with $650K grant

Prince George County, Va. — A grant recently acquired by the Fire and EMS department allowed Owen's original request for nine career firefighter-medics to be met.

The $650,000 grant will allow Fire and EMS to hire six firefighter-medics for two years. The county is obligated to fund the hires for the third year. Owens is confident the growth in the county will support the new hires after the grant funding runs out.

He also expects the additional hires to reduce response times. The additional resources have been put toward the Carson substation and Jefferson Park station, where Fire and EMS incidents are most concentrated.
