DENISON, Tex. (KXII) - The City of Denison is turning to outside help for emergency medical services.

The city council voted Monday to enter into an agreement with LifeNet to provide EMS services.

The council says the agreement will last for six months while the city's ten new EMT hires complete training in paramedic school.

The city will lease three ambulances to LifeNet for $1 a year. The lease is eligible to be renewed up to 5 years.

Denison also hired a new Medical director for one year. Dr. Matthew Young will start November 1.
