“Director Freeman Bailey put his heart and soul into this project and Woodford County can be proud of our new world-class EMS headquarters,” Kay said in a post on the county’s Facebook page.

“Station No.1 will be one of the most energy efficient buildings in Woodford County, coming in on budget and ahead of schedule,” Kay added, “Our EMS crews are world-class and now our team has a quality facility to better serve our people.”

The three-bay building has a personal touch with a hand-crafted meeting table and matching lockers for crews.

Judge Kay applauded the great professional work done by Marrillia Design and Construction, thanking Owner Josh Marrillia, Site Manager Pete Hubbard and Project Manager Jim Hayes (a Woodford County resident) on a job well done.

“They were awesome to work with. We couldn’t ask for a better partner. Marrillia is a leader in their field and the quality of their professionalism, people and product is unmatched,” Kay said in his post.

EMS crews are expected to move in the building this week. This project was one of the first priorities of the Fiscal Court.
