Washington County Officials Approve Loan For New Ambulance

WASHINGTON COUNTY, MD - Washington County Commissioners approved a $94,476  loan for a local EMS crew to buy a new ambulance.

The Sharpsburg Area Emergency Medical Services will use the money to replace an ambulance that has over 100,000 miles.

The loan will cover 50-percent of the cost, and the company is expected to re-pay the loan over a ten year term, with a five-percent interest rate.

With discounts included, the total cost for the vehicle will be $182,752.

Before the loan was approved, officials say there was $300,000 in the Fire and Rescue Revolving Loan Fund. Officials believe there will be sufficient funds for other projects after this loan.
