Using funds from the Habersham County 9/11 memorial t-shirt sales, Habersham County Emergency Services constructed a ramp at the home of an elderly couple. This couple uses the Community Paramedicine Program that was established in 2017. The primary role of the Paramedicine Program is to provide home visits to the underserved who have chronic illness. Many participants do not have transportation or cannot afford transportation and often call an ambulance to transport them to the emergency room for mostly non-emergency situations.
