INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Some communities now know their fate when it comes to the impact of losing Rural-Metro’s ambulance Service.

One community exploring new possibilities is Martinsville. The mayor tells us all options are on the table.

The Wayne County commissioner tells us Rural-Metro only has 60-days left in their contract.

But, the Richmond Fire Department will respond through the city of Richmond. Two other ambulance services will continue in other parts of the county. They will work to bid out a new contract for service, as well.

In Johnson County, Greenwood says they will only have 90 days to find a solution. A meeting is scheduled for Thursday to put together a plan and a timeline. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
