Radio Problems for New York Medics

WAYNE COUNTY, N.Y. (WHEC) –  Officials say they are concerned because of an issue with emergency radios that may keep people from getting the help they need.

We first told you about this issue on Tuesday. Right now, officials aren’t exactly sure what the issue is, but say they are working to find a solution. We spoke with a paramedic who says this is putting first responders in serious danger.

Ironically, the same day our story aired, a paramedic says he responded to a call only to discover the patient had a gun. He says he tried using his radio to call for backup, but couldn’t.
