Johnston County Commissioners have agreed to extend contracts with two EMS agencies in Johnston County to provide emergency medical care to residents in their communities.
On Monday, the county board unanimously agreed to extend contracts with 50-210 EMS and Four Oaks EMS an additional three years. The current contracts were set to expire on July 1, 2018.
Previously, the county had extended contracts on a yearly basis.
50-210 and Four Oaks EMS are the last two contract EMS organizations in Johnston County. Johnston County EMS has acquired all the other EMS agencies in the last several years. Selma EMS was taken over by Johnston County EMS on July 1, 2017.
“50-210 and Four Oaks EMS are doing a great job providing emergency medical services,” Johnston County Manager Rick Hester told WTSB after Monday’s meeting. “I appreciate the outstanding service they provide and how we all work so well together.”
The 3 year contract extension was also recommended by the Johnston County EMS Advisory Committee.
