SHERMAN, Tex. -- Sherman firefighters are training for a new program that may save the lives of heart patents in distress. Firefighters say they are working along side Wilson N Jones to get accreditation for a grant through the hospital.

It will provide EMS workers the ability to notify doctors within minutes if a patient is having a major heart attack.

Brown says this gives doctors the ability to have everything ready to treat the patients once the ambulance arrives at the hospital.

    I would rather pay my local firemen overtime to train than not to train at all. Horrah for Sherman Fire Department.

    The training never stops. We are always seeking better ways to provide the very base care. Ken, get over it. Go look elsewhere for your story.

    Did they do this training on overtime?
