  • One year later - ALS is breaking even

    General Manager

    A little more than one year after advanced life support ambulance services became available in Henry County, officials agree it was worth the initial debate and added cost.

    Judge-Executive John Logan Brent said the first year was smooth, with the service operating with a relatively negligible financial impact.

    “As far as making a direct impact in patient health, we know of a handful of occasions that it has, (but) that’s been very difficult to measure.”
