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.
