Grand Junction, Colorado Tests Paramedic Vehicle Program

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) – The Grand Junction Fire Department says they are testing a new program with paramedics next month.

The fire department says in September, they are going to test out giving paramedics their own vehicles, so they can directly respond to emergencies themselves. MORE
