By Jim Hannah, LRC

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky lawmakers heard testimony today on how first responders across the state have held up during COVID-19.

"Our EMS agencies have struggled with a multitude of challenges," said Michael Poynter, executive director of the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services. He was testifying before the Interim Joint Committee on Veterans, Military Affairs and Public Protection.

Poynter rattled off the challenges. They include employees unable to work due to quarantine, shortages of personal protective equipment and the additional costs of it all.
