Redmond submitted a letter Jan. 4 to David Loftin, Region 1 EMS director, asking to provide assistance in covering Floyd Medical Centers ambulance zone commitment. Redmond is requesting to be considered for the Coosa, West Rome and Garden Lakes zones.
In a meeting earlier this month, the council forwarded the request to its transportation committee for consideration.
According to Loftin, February's meeting will include representatives from both Redmond and Floyd. Issues to be examined include staffing, rollover and what is best for public welfare.
