*** Important Public Safety Statement ***

We are saddened by the closure of Altavista EMS, which became effective at noon on Friday, March 31, 2017.  We express our gratitude to Altavista EMS for their years of service to our community.  To the personnel who will be displaced as a result of this closure, we extend best wishes for new beginnings and a successful future. 

For the safety and welfare of our citizens, Hurt is actively engaged in collaboration with Pittsylvania County to address the need for quality, reliable emergency medical services throughout the northern portion of the county.  At this time, our community is being served by units from Region One.  Efforts are ongoing to develop a more permanent, long-term solution to meet the area’s needs.

We will post updates as details are resolved and more information becomes available, so please check our website and/or Facebook page periodically for changes or follow-up.
