Oceanside To Consider Reducing Ambulance Services
Last week, Oceanside City Council members said that they will evaluate a proposal to reduce nighttime ambulance services this fall on a trial basis. The proposal would reduce of the number of ambulances operating between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. in the city from four to three. The plan was prompted by steadily increasing costs for employee overtime at the city's fire department, according to the city manager.
