Pat Helm, director of emergency medical services, informed LaRue County magistrates meeting at the courthouse in Hodgenville last week that his department will be purchasing reflective vests to comply with a new federal regulation.
“It applies to any emergency responder or construction worker,” Helm said. “It’s a carryover from what the state is doing.”
Helm said state workers already are wearing the lime-green vests, which he believes might be the most reflective. Other color choices include yellow or orange-red.
