Ambulances serving Columbia County are more than just a ride to the hospital.
They’re also technologically advanced mobile medical treatment centers.
“A lot of folks that we go to still look at this as a ride,” Gold Cross Emergency Medical Service paramedic John Evans said. “They have no idea that they are actually being taken care of on the way to the hospital.”
Gold Cross provides five ambulances, staffed with a paramedic and emergency medical technician, to serve Columbia County 24 hours a day. A sixth is staffed and on call on weekdays.
