Ambulances Donated for Rural Georgia EMS

(AP) MARIETTA, Ga. - MetroAtlanta Ambulance is donating two fully operational ambulances to a southwest Georgia county without access to emergency medical services.

At a donation ceremony Wednesday in Marietta, the ambulance company plans to announce it also will provide dispatch and billing services at no cost to Quitman County residents. The hope is that with the expertise, equipment and initial startup costs, Quitman County will be able to generate revenue to maintain an affordable service.

MetroAtlanta, the designated 911 ambulance provider for more than 700,000 residents of Cobb County, says the donation of a new fully operational and equipped vehicle as a primary response unit, and another as a backup, is valued at about $120,000.
