Mayor Stresses Commitment To Keeping Fire/Ambulance Dispatch In Lethbridge
LETHBRIDGE: Mayor Chris Spearman reaffirmed the importance
of keeping ambulance dispatch here in Lethbridge Tuesday morning.
Through a media release, Spearman expressed concern regarding recent comments
from Minister Fred Horne, saying much more work needs to be done for the
integrated fire and EMS dispatch to stay in our city.
At the end of January the province reversed their decision that all Alberta
municipalities would move to a centralized system, after strong opposition from
city council and Lethbridge residents.
It was noted at the time that some details would still need to be worked out, and
that it could take a few months to get everything settled. On that note, Mayor
Spearman is scheduled to meet with Horne in Calgary later this month.
