New EMS Facility in Jackson County

Local News

Jackson County emergency officials are expanding their coverage and cutting their response time, thanks to a brand new, state-of-the-art EMS facility. 

The new location on Charleston Road in Kenna will allow first responders to better serve the southern part of the Jackson County says County Commission President, Dick Waybright. 

“It has been in development for a few months,” said Waybright. “We had an ambulance service in southern Jackson County but it was working out of the fire department. Now this our own facility.” 

The facility will feature two ambulances and a 24/7, 365 crew. The multimillion-dollar project will improve response times by about 4 minutes. 

“In an emergency that is huge,” says Jackson County E-M-S Director, Troy Bain.
