An amendment has been passed that will staff a new fire station with a firefighter/paramedic 24/7 in the absence of an ambulance, according to a blog post from an alderman. Earlier this month, Madison Mayor Paul Soglin rejected a request to add an ambulance to Fire Station 14 near Stoughton Road. The new fire station was built to cut down response times to a portion of Madison’s far east side. At a city finance committee meeting this week, Alder Michael Tierney and Alder Paul Skidmore introduced an amendment to have an ambulance operate out of Station 14, which would have funded the necessary firefighter/paramedic positions for 2019 at a cost of $658,000 or $7 for an average Madison homeowner, officials said.
