Mayor Plans to Phase Out EMTs
New Jersey Mayor Plans to Phase Out EMTs

Herald News (Passaic County, NJ)
PATERSON - Despite talk to the contrary, 37 emergency medical technicians manning the city's ambulances will not be laid off but phased out gradually and replaced by firefighters, according to Mayor Jose "Joey" Torres.
Torres said firefighters are being trained as certified EMTs so that they can fill vacancies in the future in an effort to cut down on staffing redundancy and solve a recent problem of EMTs failing to report for work. It is unclear how much money will be saved.
