Atrium Health Floyd Emergency Medical Services ambulances are now responding in Chattooga County when residents call 911 for medical assistance.
Blake Elsberry, Chattooga County’s sole commissioner, announced in May that Atrium Health Floyd would be taking over the service, which will initially provide five new, full-time ambulances and 35 teammates to respond across the county. The service represents more than a $1 million investment in new vehicles and equipment.
Atrium Health Floyd EMS provides ambulance service in Chattooga County and Floyd County, Georgia, and Cherokee County, Alabama. It also serves Polk County but is not a designated 911 provider there. EMS also provides non-emergency transportation in those counties as well as Bartow and Gordon counties.
Atrium Health Floyd EMS has been named the Georgia EMS Service of the Year three times and Region 1 Service of the Year five times.
