New EMS Station at Owings

A new EMS station for Upper Laurens County is in the works. The EMS sub-station is to be built at the Owings Industrial Park on Old Laurens Road. News at last night’s County Council meeting was that ZF Transmissions has donated land for the new EMS building and Representative Mike Pitts has arranged for the state to pay for the building’s construction.

The Public Works Committee of Council recommended a Laurens County EMS Master Plan, that included the building for Owings. County Council approved the plan, with a “no” vote from Stewart Jones.
