ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County's Emergency Medical Services is one step closer to having their new headquarters built.

County commissioners approved to have SRJ Architects construct the new building on 8th Avenue and Palmyra Road.

Their current headquarters are on 2nd Avenue and Jefferson Street. The facility will sit on two acres of land and be about twice the size of their current building.

The new location will make it easier for crews to be dispatched when you need them.

"It will be much easier to get in and out off as far as traffic. And hopefully improve morale because it will be a better facility with better living conditions for our people which I hope translates into better care for the patient," said Dougherty County EMS Director Bobby Tripp.

Construction of the new facility will begin May 2009. It will be ready to occupy in January of 2010.
