Kingston lawmakers to vote on $850,000 transfer for paramedics/EMTs for city-run ambulance service – Daily Freeman

KINGSTON, N.Y. — City lawmakers are set to vote Tuesday night on authorizing a transfer of nearly $860,000 from the city’s fund balance to hire more paramedics and EMT’s after the Kingston Fire Department took over the city’s ambulance service from Empress EMS on Jan. 1.

If the vote is approved, the city would shift just under $860,000 from the city’s fund balance to the Kingston Fire Department to add more staff to the city’s ambulance service which has responded to nearly 360 calls in its first month in operation. In early January, the Common Council’s Finance and Audit Committee unanimously agreed to recommend the measure.
