PRESS RELEASE
Emergency Services Grant & Innovative Financing
 
 

Hertford Commissioners leverage grant dollars & invest in Public Safety
Hertford County’s emergency services personnel will have reliable modern resources to answer the community’s 911 calls thanks to the Hertford County Board of Commissioners’ vision and innovation.  The Hertford County EMS fleet is being equipped with two state-of-the-art ambulances and a quick response vehicle.  Additionally, a generator will be installed at the Hertford County Administration building allowing for crucial operations to continue during power outages.  Hertford County, in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), has secured a grant and loan for these vehicles and equipment. These integral partnerships allow Hertford County to meet the growing service demands of our community.
Further, the Hertford County Board of Commissioners are pushing the boundaries on innovative and collaborative measures to improve the services offered to the citizens, businesses and visitors in Hertford County.  Hertford County is able to leverage finite resources through an innovative leasing program, which is allowing us to update and modernize our vehicle fleet via a public private partnership with Enterprise Fleet Management, a funding mechanism which provides for a level, predictable budgeted amount.  The Sheriff’s Office will be replacing nearly half of their fleet through this long term strategic partnership.  The Hertford County Building Inspections Department, Utilities Department and Building & Grounds Maintenance Department are also participating in this program, which will ensure that we continue to meet the expectations of the community that we live and serve in.  These are but two examples of the creative and progressive measures being implemented by the Hertford County Board of Commissioners for the betterment of our community.
