Washington Court House, OH – June 15, 2018 – Fayette County EMS recently acquired a new emergency response
vehicle to replace a 19-year-old vehicle.
The new vehicle is a 2018 Ford F-550 4x4 unit purchased for about $198,000.
The new vehicle features LED lighting, updated safety features, updated
electronics and hydraulic suspension.

for this new vehicle,” said Rod List, Fayette County EMS Director.
According to List the EMS responds to over 4,500 runs annually.

is now owned by the County Commissioners who contract with FCMH to manage
the service. The staff of 14 EMT basics and 20 full/part time paramedics
respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
