Washington County will get a new ambulance thanks to the state's tobacco settlement fund.
The county received $23,102 this year. According to Washington County officials, Hospice will get $14,400, while the remainder will go toward a new EMS vehicle and other emergency services.
The Tobacco Settlement Permanent Trust Account was established after the state settled a lawsuit against tobacco companies.
The money is intended to help counties and cities recover their costs for indigent health care.
