(KNZA)--The Jackson County Commission has approved a new three-year contract with Jackson County EMS for ambulance services.

The contract, approved at the Commission's January 6 meeting, calls for the county to pay $352,000 annually.

The county's previous three-year contract, which expired at the end of 2019, included $302,000 in funding for 2017, $352,000 for 2018 and $402,000 for 2019.

As part of the new contract, The Holton Recorder reports Jackson County EMS will provide one fully staffed primary ambulance in Holton. A second ambulance will also be located in Jackson County that will be staffed with on-duty personnel 64 hours per week. The remainder of the staffing for the second ambulance will be on-call.

In 2018, Jackson County EMS responded to 1,403 ambulance calls in the county.
