RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — The cost of an ambulance ride in Randolph County is going up.

County Commissioners unanimously approved the proposed increases Monday night, according to the Courier-Tribune.

Beginning July 1, all but two services will now cost at least $300.

County EMS Director Donovan Davis says the rising costs of fuel and medication means patients will pay more.

The last time ambulance fees went up was in 2011.

    Betting if they didn’t buy the 911 dispatchers rain parkas and the IT person a Tahoe to drive home they wouldn’t need to increase the fees. Oh yes let’s not forget that Mr. Davis wants to build a new EMS base in the middle of no where that has the lowest call volume in the county. Maybe Mr. Davis has some swamp land in Nevada that he can sell the tax payers. The commissioners were warned before this was done.
