Penrose EMS suspending services

Top Stories

COLORADO SPRINGS — The town of Penrose is suspending their ambulance services starting on July 4th.

In a Facebook post by the Penrose Fire Department it said they don’t have the staff to provide the service. This means people in the Penrose community cannot assume an ambulance will be available for a call to service. Officials are urging anyone with an EMT certification or higher to volunteer. They believe if that happens they can consider options to keep the ambulances running.
