(This amendment provides $750,000 the second year from the general fund for Patrick County Fire/EMS for fieldwork and training. The county has not current hospital, emergency room or even urgent care, thus relies on the EMS department for providing adequate triage services until they can transport citizens to neighboring localities. They are largely dependent on their equipment to save lives, however, much of it needs replacement due to age. Funds would be used to upgrade equipment and train employees.)
