Carroll officials consolidate ordering and purchasing of medical supplies for fire and EMS companies

October 14, 2022

As part of the county’s transition to a combination fire and emergency medical services system, the Department of Fire and EMS is beginning to combine purchasing efforts as well, starting with medical supplies. On Thursday, the Board of Carroll County Commissioners unanimously approved a $350,000 contract with Bound Tree Medical of Fairfax, Virginia, for the purchase of medical supplies for all 14 county fire and EMS companies. Currently, medical supplies are purchased by each of the volunteer fire and EMS companies separately. “As we transition over, a lot of things that the volunteers have purchased on their own, we’re trying to make it seamless,” said Michael Robinson Sr., director of Carroll County’s Fire and Emergency Medical Department.
