Bedford approves $80k on new equipment

Posted: Updated:

BEDFORD COUNTY, VA – Bedford County Fire & EMS will spend $80,000 on new equipment.

Those funds became available last night when the Bedford County Board of Supervisors approved the transfer of county funds.

$80,000 may seem like a lot of money, but outfitting a single firefighter costs over $11,000.

The county will buy 36 pant and coat sets. Each department in the county will receive three sets.

Departments could see their new equipment as soon as 40 days.
