Thirty-one counties in South and Middle Georgia are getting emergency 9-1-1 service because of the three million dollars the state received to help these residents.

Taylor says if residents in these rural counties do have an emergency, help will be on the way.

Lt. Governor, Mark Taylor says, "I'm real proud of the state and working with Senator Michael Von Bremen to get three million dollars to bring on the last thirty-one counties in Georgia most in south and middle Georgia that still don't have Emergency 911."

Law makers are also trying to build trauma centers that will be within one hour of every resident's home in Georgia.
