Calhoun's EMS building at Mt. Zion has some critical needs
There will be some much needed improvements on the Calhoun EMS building at Mt. Zion, funded by a $10,000 grant from the County Commission.
Josh Johnson told the commission that while the squad has tried to maintain the building, which is owned by the county, "The building is in such shape that some major repairs are needed.
The biggest problem is correcting fire hazards in what Johnson said is a dilapidated electrical system.
He indicated the building needs some updating, including becoming more energy efficient.
The building was originally built for a farmer's market.
Johnson indicated he hopes to have much of the work done by volunteer labor.
Calhoun EMS also operates a sub-station at Minnora.
