The Piedmont City Council is considering a contract with Air Evac for air ambulance services.
Missy Welborn from Air Evac addressed the council during a recent meeting and presented the Municipal Site Plan.
She says if the city agrees to the contract, a little over 29-thousand dollars annually, residents inside the City Limits who are airlifted to any RMC hospital would receive the service with no out of pocket cost.
By the way, 29-thousand dollars is approximately the cost of one flight.
Last year, Air Evac responded to 19 requests for service in the Piedmont area with 6 of those coming from inside the City Limits.
The council is expected to decide on the contract during a future meeting.
