LEWISBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Greenbrier County officials are concerned about emergency medical service response times following the closures of two operations this year.

The closures of Northern Greenbrier EMS and the Williamsburg EMS leave five operations to serve the sprawling county of more than 1,000 square miles.

The Register-Herald (https://bit.ly/1JrkrsE ) reports that the Greenbrier County Commission voted to form an advisory committee to study the situation and give a report before it worsens.

Commissioner Woody Hanna told his fellow commissioners on Tuesday that more than half of the county can’t be reached by an EMS unit within 30 minutes of a 911 call.
