The goal was to have the Fanning Springs-based Emergency Medical Service ambulance up and running by Sept. 4, but the Levy County Department of Public Safety had the unit and crew on the job on Tuesday, Sept. 1.
The new station will provide coverage for the northern part of the county.
This is the county's sixth EMS station and the trailer in the background that will serve as housing and office for the crews. It is based alongside the Fanning Springs Volunteer Fire Department.
Once it is fully staffed it will create six jobs in the county.
