Now is not the right time for the city to look at a fire-based EMS model, the Hudson Common Council ultimately decided with a 2-4 vote, after discussing the issue at its regular meeting on Monday, Nov. 12. Council Member Paul Deziel brought the idea forward, saying as the city looks at its EMS options with a request for proposal, it should also be considering a model that combines fire and EMS services. "We're going to have a lot of proposals coming at us; to me this has to be one," Deziel said. Deziel said a fire-based EMS could keep local control and be sustainable in the long run. He asked staff to come up with a plan in 60 days, showing benefits, challenges, timeline and cost.
