Middlesex-London EMS Facing Funding Cuts as Need for Service Grows
Ambulance service in London-Middlesex got word last month, that it's funding from the McGuinty government was being cut by almost a quarter million dollars over the next five months.
All the while the need for service is climbing. Officials say they've had to add 329 ambulance hours over the past three months, from what they had orginally budgeted.
Neil Robert with EMS says the government needs to reconsider.
"We have already come to the Ministry and we are hoping they will turn this around. We are waiting for their decision to reverse their request for these cuts. We really need this money, and this is an important service."
Its up to city council and Middlesex council to make up the shortfall, if the McGuinty government keeps these cuts in place.
