Somerset Co. Receives Funding For New Emergency Vehicles

Posted: Updated:

SOMERSET COUNTY, Md. - Somerset County has received the funding needed to get a new emergency vehicles.

The agency will purchase a mass casualty response and swift water rescue trailer. Both vehicles will be in service across Delmarva and are intended for situations where 10 or more people are injured.  Officials tell WMDT that the additions are necessary for disasters both natural and man-made.

"We had the training but we didn't have the equipment when sandy came through.  We improvised with what we had available," says Somerset Co. Emergency Services worker Robert Price.

"We felt we had a need for a mass casualty trailer mainly because of the high volume of traffic on Route 13, with school buses," says Capt. John Barnette of the Somerset Co. Swift Water Rescue team.

Officials from Emergency Services say they are always accepting donations. For more information regarding donations, call 410-651-3457
