Berkeley County EMS to temporarily locate in Four Seasons neighborhood until a permanent Cane Bay location is built
SUMMERVILLE, S.C. - (Friday, February 16, 2018)- Berkeley County Emergency Medical Services will stage an advanced life support ambulance, paramedics and emergency medical technicians at a temporary location at K. Hovnanian’s Four Seasons at Lakes of Cane Bay, located at 109 Magnolia House Drive, Summerville.
K. Hovnanian’s Four Seasons at Lakes of Cane Bay will provide a portion of their office building, and space outside for an ambulance, to be used by Berkeley County EMS personnel (as pictured below).
This will provide support for Berkeley County’s EMS medical professionals and assure emergencies are efficiently answered.
“Public safety is a priority in Berkeley County,” said Berkeley County Supervisor Bill Peagler. “This wonderful agreement allows our EMS professionals to have the resources needed to ensure the safety of Cane Bay residents, and the rest of the County, remains a priority. With Cane Bay’s continued growth, our EMS team must have the means to provide lifesaving support to these residents. This provides that support until they can move into their permanent location. I’m so thankful Four Seasons is willing to provide our EMS professionals with this space.”
“Berkeley County made a public promise to increase our capabilities in this area of the County, and we have kept that promise,” said Berkeley County Chief of Emergency Medical Services Matthew Lindewirth. “Our entire staff, from the field personnel to the command staff, have worked extremely hard over the past year to increase our capabilities to respond to medical emergencies throughout the entire County. One of those areas is in the Cane Bay community. This will provide advanced life support capability in the most timely and efficient manner possible for our citizens. We are grateful to Four Seasons to station one of our units until a new station is built. We are not done yet. In the very near future, three additional advanced life support units will be added to the system. Again, we are keeping our promises.”
The move will be made Sunday, February 18, 2018. The location will be used until a future station in Cane Bay
This ambulance continues the investment Berkeley County Council committed in 2017-2018 budget to add four ambulances to the fleet.
