The Campbell County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted in favor of a measure which adds six full-time public safety employees to the county emergency medical services staff. The request was made by the Public Safety Director in an effort to improve response times. According to the News & Advance, the supervisors also approved lowering the EMS fees and implementing stricter billing practices to help cover the cost of the added personnel. The county will begin an educational campaign on the new rates, bill collection process and cheaper transportation methods for non-serious medical issues.
