Wetzel County EMS Meets With Governor Jim Justice

By Staff | May 15, 2019

WETZEL EMS meets with governor.

On a recent visit to Pine Grove Governor Jim Justice received a tour of Wetzel County’s mobile communications vehicle. Wetzel County received the state of the art truck almost two years ago, and it has been an asset to agencies in and around the county. 911 Director Steven Yoho and his staff provided Governor Justice with a personal tour and explained its capabilities. The director explained to the Governor that our truck is always ready to respond but also will go out on training exercises as well. Just this morning we were at Hundred High school taking part in a Mock DUI exercise, for the upcoming prom, explained Yoho.

Deputy Director Glasscock explained that surrounding counties such as Harrison, Marshall and Green County PA have showed interest in putting their frequencies in the vehicle so when they have large emergencies they can utilize the vehicle and we are currently working on that process now.

Governor Justice stated it was a very impressive vehicle and thanked the staff for providing him with a tour of the vehicle.
