The new Emergency Medical Services building serving Fountain County residents has recently opened its doors for business. Commercial News reports that the structure is located just off Route 41, south of Interstate 74 in Veedersburg, Indiana. The county required a new building after outgrowing the last one.
Garth Kagels, EMS director, told the news source that the new building is 10,780 square feet and big enough for the group to grow into. The structure includes offices, a bill pay area, a large reception desk, a kitchenette, training room and a small meeting room. The entire project cost nearly $1 million, but more than half of that amount was funded by state grants. No tax money was used to pay for the construction of the new building. 
Even with the budget in mind, the structure features a number of high-quality amenities that will help emergency servicemen and women remain comfortable and productive when they are not in the field. In addition, eco-friendly technologies were included in the construction to help reduce future operational expenses. Radiant floor heating was installed throughout the building so that emergency responders could wait for calls to come while still being comfortable. Commercial News reports that that EMS technicians are on duty at all times and another two are on call.
In addition, the high quality technology allows for an individual to come in from a cold night and immediately warm up. The eco-friendly solution is ideal in this commercial space because it is highly efficient and will require less energy and less county funds to keep it running in tip-top shape.
