Lake Sinclair: before you buy in Hancock county read this

Lake Sinclair is surrounded by three counties: Putnam, Baldwin and Hancock.  I have sold a few houses in Hancock County in my 23 year career, but I always advise against it. I have long heard stories of how no one shows up if you call 9-1-1 in Hancock County 

While I have never heard of a single person having an issue with getting a quick response in Putnam or Baldwin counties, Hancock is a different story. 

Today when in a community group on facebook I ran across the following post.  I've removed the name to protect her privacy, but I don't ever want to be in her shoes and I don't want any of my buyers to be in her shoes either. 

No ambulance available!  How heartbreaking.

If someone has a property to sell in Hancock County I refer them to a company located in that county. We do not advertise properties on our site that are in Hancock County.

We are located on the north side of the lake and work in Putnam and Baldwin counties. Many clients rule out Hancock when they are buying a weekend place because of location and drive time from Atlanta (where most of our buyers live full time), but when we have re-locations emergency services is always at the forefront of their mind.  I can't in good conscience not tell people where to investigate and find stories like this. 

Currenty a county commisisoner has commented on the thread and hopefully will look into it and help get things to change in Hancock County, but for now, I will direct potential buyers of the place they can read this account.
