LAWRENCE -

One year after laying off its entire staff of Emergency Medical Technicians, 13 Investigates has learned the City of Lawrence is now looking to rehire six part-time EMT/paramedics.

The city laid off 20 EMTs in October of last year and transferred all ambulance duties to Lawrence firefighters, claiming the city would save nearly $2 million.

Now the mayor's office says the part-time positions are needed to cover a couple of firefighter vacancies.
