AMBULANCE chiefs are due to decide today on whether to restore the blue lights for the Nantwich First Responders.
The emergency lights were removed from the volunteer medics in May.
North West Ambulance Service, which says it wants to standardise the first responder service, agreed to review the decision following a meeting with Crewe and Nantwich MP Edward Timpson and members of Nantwich Town Council.
But a war of words has since developed with the Conservative MP accusing ambulance bosses of going back on their word after they released a statement to the Chronicle saying they “would fully consider a case to utilise the blue lights if the responder became part of a co-responder scheme.”
Co-responders are professionals from other emergency services. Mr Timpson maintains the blue light debate related only to the first responders.
