SLOCOMB RESCUE: The time is 1:10 AM on Wednesday morning.
Geneva County 911 has dispatcher Slocomb EMS and Fayetteville First Responders to Whitaker Road to a medical emergency.
The call was paged out at 1:08 AM by Geneva County 911. At 1:11 AM the tires on the ambulance were rolling from Slocomb Fire - Rescue to Whitaker Road.
In three minutes from when Geneva County 911 entered the call into the 911 system and hit the paging system the ambulance was rolling.
Great time in rolling.
And if the patient requires transport to the hospital the choices are: (1) Geneva Medical in Geneva (2) Flowers Hospital in Dothan (3) Southeast Health in Dothan or (4) Medical Center Enterprise.
So those wondering what Slocomb Fire - EMS is doing, while you are asleep, they are responding to a medical call. So you sleep tight tonight knowing the citizens are in good hands.
TO THE GENEVA COUNTY COMMISSION CHAIRMAN AND COMMISSIONERS:
I do not know where it ever became the responsibility of Slocomb, Hartford, Geneva or Samson’s responsibility to provide EMS coverage for the entire county without financial responsibility on the Geneva County Commission.
The Geneva County Commission gives the four EMS units $ 1,000.00 a year to help them.
This is a call outside the city limits of Slocomb.
Geneva County Commission, get your heads out of the sand.
