Members of the Sheridan City Council discuss ambulance service at their meeting Tuesday night.

Nearly two-hundred people showed up at Sheridan City Hall Tuesday night to show and voice their support of the firefighters with Sheridan Fire-Rescue. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter was at the City Council meeting and has the story.


There were a large number of concerned citizens that addressed the Council regarding the possible privatization of ambulance service within the City. While some were short in what they had to say, and some were a bit longer, none may have been as spirited as what Melody Thompson expressed to the Council.

Rachel Depew, who's worked for the Sheridan Police Department in some form or fashion for over decade, was a bit different in her approach.

Sheridan Fire-Rescue Firefighter/EMT and Local Union President George Neeson offered these thoughts to the Council.

The department heads were seeking the Council's support to enter into contract negotiations with Rocky Mountain Ambulance to provide EMS within the City. The Council did not make a decision on that request, as they were in agreement that all of the input and information they received at the meeting needs to be digested, and that further information needs to be gathered before a decision can be made.
