PALMYRA, Va. (AP) -- The Fluvanna County Rescue Squad's license is in jeopardy after state inspectors found broken equipment, dirty supplies and other problems in ambulances.

The Daily Progress ( ) reports that the rescue squad's license was downgraded to provisional and two of its five ambulances were suspended following an inspection in May.

State inspectors plan to return to the squad on Monday. They then will decide whether to extend the squad's provisional license or revoke it.

Virginia Office of Emergency Management assistant director Scott Winston tells the newspaper that revoking the squad's license is unlikely. He says state officials don't want to see any agency shut down.

If the license is revoked, county supervisors say Lake Monticello volunteers would cover for the county squad. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
