JORDAN VALLEY – The Jordan Valley Ambulance Service is getting a $110,000 loan to build a new ambulance services center in downtown Jordan Valley.

The loan is from the Eastern Oregon Business Development Loan Fund.

“We’re excited about it, it’s been a long wait and things are finally starting to take shape,” said Marta Stoddart, one of three emergency medical technicians currently volunteering for the service.
