LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Trying to stem the financial losses, residents within the Lyndon Fire District met to discuss ways they might save their fire stations; they believe an ambulance service would help the district but so far that request has been denied.
For months the Lyndon Fire District has been battling rising financial costs and a stagnant tax base.
Lyndon has already tried stop-gap measures including: brown outs, reducing staff and closing stations for a period of time.
Now Lyndon officials and others are being urged to lobby for another source of revenue.
After July 1 Lyndon Fire officials say they will only respond to serious medical emergencies with EMT's onboard their fire trucks.
They estimate their runs will drop by 1,000 a year.
Meanwhile Metro EMS and Anchorage EMS respond to calls in the Lyndon area.
