Warriors new Ambulance. This will be run by our fire department and will cut time to transport to the hospital and inevitably save lives. For folks with heart problems etc where time is of the essence, this will cut the time down transporting to the hospital and ultimately save lives. We are very excited to be able to offer this service. We have received a grant to pay the wages of the paramedics for two years. It is a win win for the citizens and the city. Thanks to all involved for helping make this possible. We will continue to use Blount EMS that has always done a good job as our backup. It's a good time to be from Warrior!
