ANDERSON COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Anderson County Emergency Medical Services announced the launch of their Paramedic Quick Response Vehicles Program.
“Anderson County Council chose to venture into this aspect of providing emergency
medical services to supplement the current providers and ensure that all citizens in the
county have access to advanced medical care when it is needed, while reducing
response times for true emergencies,” according to the release from Anderson County EMS.

providing the needed care on scene as soon as possible, transportation is then
secondary,” according to the press release.
