EMS service to cover Walnut Hill, Bratt areas

Escambia County EMS in Florida recently announced that it will be responsible for primary ambulance response in the Walnut Hill and Bratt areas, according to Northescambia.com.

“This is the result of a great partnership between EMS, fire and county administration working together to better serve local citizens,” Escambia County EMS Chief Steve White said on Northescambia.com.

The fire station is now home to an Escambia County EMS ambulance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For some 40 years, Atmore Ambulance has provided primary medical response services to the Walnut Hill and Bratt areas, according to the article. Recently, Escambia County got out of the contract.

White told Northescambia.com that Atmore Ambulance will continue to respond into Florida under a mutual aid agreement, and that Escambia EMS (Florida) will also be available to respond into Atmore.

On Monday, the Atmore City Council approved a business license request for Jackson Emergency Transport LLC (ASAP EMS).
