Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services added another squad Sunday morning to their fleet of ambulances. Squad 5 was put into service at Fire Station #5 which is located in the Macedonia community.
According the EMS Chief, Nate Sullivan, “The hard work of our Training Division and all the personnel involved in our paramedic program has paid off again. The paramedics that recently graduated have provided enough paramedics to be able to staff this additional squad.”
Squad 5 will be the county’s 16th squad and will reduce response times and increase the level of service to citizens in the eastern portion of the Cherokee County.
