CARS Response to Albemarle County
Beginning on February 4, 2013, Albemarle County Fire and Rescue should provide the first ambulance response in the areas of Albemarle County that were previously covered by CARS. Specialized rescue services to the entire county and city will continue to be provided by CARS at all times. In addition, CARS continues to serve the residents in its previous response areas on weekends, nights, and holidays.
CARS reluctantly made this necessary service adjustment in response to changes made by Albemarle County Fire and Rescue. A copy of the letter sent by CARS to the Albemarle County Fire Chief is provided here to explain the situation.
