Carroll County Fiscal Court agreed to purchase a bariatric power load system for loading patients in to the ambulance. The county has two ambulances outfitted with the systems now.
Carroll County Emergency Services director Ed Webb said that he had received a $20,000 grant to pay for most of the system. Bidders for the project had three options, bid the system, bid installation or bid both. The county received two bids, one for the system and one for the installation.
