County commissioners places Smithsburg EMS under probation


The Washington County Board of County Commissioners voted to put Smithsburg EMS on probation after the department asked for immediate financial assistance.

According to Smithsburg EMS, the department underestimated the costs of extra staffing and benefits, so they asked the county for a loan. Commissioners voted unanimously to provide a loan to the Smithsburg department. 

The department has been placed on probation and under county review for at least three years or until the loan is repaid, whichever lasts longer.
