PECOS - A tough time balancing the budget in Pecos left some concerned for the future of the Emergency Medical Team.

Mayor Alligood says this has been a hot button issue for the city, but they're now working out new scenarios hoping to improve response time.

Some neighbors were concerned budgets cuts would cut EMS worker jobs.

Now, not only is the city not cutting back, but they are hoping to hire a few more.

Officials hope to add as many as four new squad members.
