ALBANY, GA (WALB) - We're all looking for ways to save money.

A lot of folks who answer the call when you dial 911 found an economical way to get to work.

Eight EMS workers at the Dougherty County EMS headquarters have motorcycles.

Steve Ebel says he used to ride for fun, now he commutes from Dawson on his motorcycle.

He said when costs $140 to fill up his diesel truck,  there was really no other choice.

"It's just the price of fuel nowadays It's getting ridiculous, myself I live in Dawson, and it's 23 miles each way. There are a bunch of just that just like to ride even when we're off duty we get off we have rides down to Tallahassee, Panama city, next month we're planning on going to Callaway Gardens," said Steve Ebel, Dougherty County EMT.

The EMT's frequently team up with other riders from Phoebe for those bike runs.
