Some members of the Garrett County Planning Commission believe that more paid emergency medical services personnel may be needed in the future to counter a decrease in volunteers. The discussion was part of the planning commission’s review of community facilities in the county comprehensive plan. Currently, all fire departments in the county are staffed by volunteers. In fiscal year 2015, the county had 10 full-time and six part-time providers. During the fiscal 2017 budgeting process, the county’s public safety/emergency services budget was increased by nearly $877,000 to more than $1.5 million.
