MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. (WAAY) - The 3 ambulances repossessed from County EMS Monday night returned to  Hartselle on Friday afternoon.

County EMS operations manager Joey McKinley tells WAAY-31 the company they lease the ambulances from repossessed them not because of money but over a breach of contract.

The only name on the lease agreement was owner Terry Garwood. Garwood died Jan. 17 and according to McKinley, the leasing company had no contact information for anyone else with County EMS.

McKinley said this week County EMS sent the leasing company probate orders showing Terry Garwood's son Matthew as the holder of his father's estate. Matthew has been added to the leasing agreement as the owner of County EMS.

"We are very, very excited not only because we have our ambulances back but we have more trucks now to cover the city with" says McKinley.

The three other ambulances in the County EMS fleet plus a borrowed ambulance continued to operate during that time. County EMS is the only ambulance provider in Hartselle and handles calls in Falkville and parts of Morgan and Lawrence County.
