Detroit EMS Providers Protest Cuts

DETROIT — Dozens of Detroit paramedics protested June 25 because they want to be able to come to people’s assistance quickly in case of an emergency–and proposed budget cuts would make that impossible.

Raising signs that read “Save us so we can save you,” the paramedics withstood the 90-degree heat in order to raise awareness of budget cuts about to take place that will affect the safety of Detroit residents, as well as anyone who happens to pass through.
