ERWIN, Tenn. (WJHL) – Unicoi County commissioners approved allocating $100 thousand to improve ambulance services.
The commission approved the funding in a unanimous vote Monday evening.
The money will come from when former Mountain States Health Alliance purchased the Unicoi County Hospital. The funds will go to Washington County-Johnson City EMS, which will soon provide services in Unicoi County.
Commissioners say the money will allow EMS services to cover upfront costs for providing services in the county.
