Ribbon cut for new Catawba County EMS base in Newton

Catawba County Commissioners Sherry Butler, Board Vice Chair Barbara Beatty, Board Chair Randy Isenhower, Kitty Barnes and Austin Allran celebrated the completion of the newly-constructed Catawba County EMS base in Newton with a ribbon cutting ceremony Monday, November 21. The ceremony was attended by Catawba County EMS staff, construction partners Winstead Architecture, Moss Marlow and Brittain Engineering, and county staff. The nearly 6,000-square-foot building doubles the size of the former Newton base and places the base at closer proximity to Southwest Boulevard (US Hwy 321 Business). The facility features three drive-through ambulance bays and a large storage area that will serve as the central warehouse for Catawba County EMS and Catawba County Emergency Management.
