Beginning June 1, 2018, Emergency Medical Services will be provided in Hurt by Delta Response Team (DRT), which purchased the previous provider, Regional One. DRT, a paid professional EMS provider, has contracted with with Pittsylvania County to cover the northern portion of the county through June and July, with an option to extend the arrangement through August if necessary. Meanwhile, county officials plan to continue forward this summer with the RFP/bidding process in order to procure a more permanent service arrangement beyond the next few months.
DRT will operate out of a small building adjacent to and owned by the Hurt Volunteer Fire Department, as Regional One had been doing. EMS crews will be on call 24/7/365. We recognize and appreciate their service to our community.
