LEE CO., GA (WALB) - Lee County Fire & Emergency Services are getting two new ambulances to provide better emergency response for the fast growing population in Lee County.

The Board of Commissioners voted to go ahead and purchase one new ambulance out of SPLOST VI tax funds.

Chief David Forrester said some of the county’s ambulances date back to 2003 and the new equipment is a necessity.
