Albany -- Dougherty County Commissioners plan to enter into a mutual aid agreement for Emergency Medical Services with MCLB Albany.

Now that the base has full EMS services, Dougherty County will enter into a mutual aid agreement.  That agreement will make county EMS services available to the base in emergency situations, and vice versa. 

"When you're at MCLB, you obviously have quite a distance before you can get to a hospital and the quicker we can get that service to MCLB and get that person looked after and get that information called in, the better chance they have of getting well and having less deterioration in their healthcare," said Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard.

MCLB EMS would also respond to emergencies within the county if needed.
