Keep Saving Lives in West City
The Village of West City Board Member has decided to cease the first responder program from the West City Fire Department as of May 31, 2018 at midnight. They are deeming it necessary due to higher payroll and higher call volume. The fire department stands behind this program and it is at no charge to the patients that are treated. All first responders within the fire department respond to these calls for no pay from the Firefighter Payroll. All medical supplies used on these calls are replenished through Abbott EMS, so there is no cost for supplies and restock. The only thing the village is responsible for is liability while responding to these calls and fuel that used by the responding apparatus. We are asking for your support in keeping the program going. With your signature, you can show your support and potentially help save a life in time of need.
