Fire And Rescue Partnership Evaluated

A recently-proposed partnership between the City of Prestonsburg and Lifeguard Emergency Medical Services was declined by the city council this week.According to Mayor Les Stapleton, the partnership would have been a managerial labor contract that would allow the city to transport emergency patients if Lifeguard needed help and would supply the ambulance for those runs.Stapleton said the council decided it already had the resources and options to skip the middle man by running its own ambulance from Prestonsburg Fire and Rescue.
