Lexington Firefighters Fight Against Changes

The way Lexington firefighters and EMS crews work to make you safe could soon be changing.

But the change might not be for the better according to officials with the Lexington Professional Firefighters.

The union says it's fighting a change within its staffing level that would change the current number of EMT workers from three to two for each ambulance, due to a budget concern.

The union argues that having one less person on each ambulance is "devastating" to the community causing a major safety concern for
many.

The union says there are many other ways the government can save money.

The mayor's office has not said for sure if and when it will make any changes in staffing for the fire department. Right now they say this move is just a suggestion.
