Lawrence council unanimously approves raises for EMS employees

lawrence raises

LAWRENCE, Ind – The battle over raises for paramedics and EMT’s came to an end in Lawrence Monday night. The common council unanimously approved a proposal that gives the emergency workers an immediate pay increase.

This, after several city EMTs said they left the department because of low pay, and a plan that would have given Lawrence EMTs an immediate raise was turned down by council members last month.  Some people worried about losing more EMTs, and the effect it could have on emergency response time.
