  • County government update: EMS, solid waste

    By Judge-Executive John Logan Brent

     

    Change has been the norm when it comes to Henry County EMS. Over the last 10 years, we have seen the service evolve from a part-time, paid day service to a 24/7 paid service with paramedics. Not so long ago there were dozens of volunteer EMT’s with ambulances stationed in the county’s four biggest towns. Today there are less than a handful of volunteers and they assist the county with runs. These folks make a modest per diem and are an important part of our service.

    While not a parent, I am an adult who is concerned about our children.
