The Dade County Commission recently voted for Memorial EMS to provide ambulance services for the county.

Puckett EMS will stop answering 911 calls February 1st at 6AM.

Puckett has been Dade’s 911 provider for the last several years.

Memorial EMS will takeover the 911 calls at that time.

Memorial EMS is owned and operated by CHI Memorial, which operates Chattanooga-based Memorial Hospital and CHI Memorial Georgia in Fort Oglethorpe. The old Hutcheson Medical Center.

Memorial also recently entered into an agreement with Walker County GA to provide their medical services.

 

Dade County EMA director Alex Case explained the changes on Thursday.
