Town of Davidson pushes back on MEDIC’s new response time plan
The town of Davidson is pushing back on MEDIC’s proposed changes that would change its response times for certain 911 calls.
Both MEDIC and Iredell County Commissioners received a resolution from Davidson asking that the town’s fire department continues to respond to all EMS service calls. The town also asked for frequent meetings between MEDIC and other county agencies to see if the new plan has any negative impacts on residents.

Channel 9′s Gina Esposito spoke with MEDIC’s deputy director, Jon Studnek, who said that this pushback is just another step towards transparency.
“I see this as just another step in the dialogue and transparency process that we’ve initially undertaken with all the towns in Mecklenburg County to discuss response configuration changes,” Studnek told Esposito.
