Washington County, Md., may create a reserve fleet of fire trucks and ambulances to support volunteer fire and EMS companies, the Herald-Mail Media reported.

The county’s emergency services director said having a county reserve fleet of three fire trucks and two to three ambulances would mean volunteers would not need a second or third vehicle but could borrow one as needed. The program could cost $2.22 million over the next 10 years.

The emergency services director also proposed a rescue fleet replacement fund to help volunteer companies acquire new vehicles.
