Despite putting a seventh city ambulance in service in mid-2018, Lincoln Fire and Rescue’s paramedics remain swamped responding to emergency medical calls in the growing city, retiring Fire Chief Micheal Despain said.

Call volumes in Lincoln continue climbing at three times the rate of population growth, mainly because of the medical needs of the city’s aging population, Despain said.
