The City of Madison Fire Department will say goodbye today to a 27-year veteran of the Department.
Firefighter/Paramedic Megan Williamson joined the Department on March 25, 1985. Much of her time during those years was spent as a paramedic, assigned to an ambulance.
Williamson coincidentally leaves during EMS week. In 2011, the Madison Fire Department responded to 19,698 Emergency Medical Service (EMS) calls. That makes up more than 78% of all emergency calls that the fire department responded to in 2011. The Madison Fire Department has eight ambulances staffed by two paramedics each.
Williamson is working her last day today at Firehouse #10, 1517 Troy Dr., where firefighters both current and past are expected to drop by throughout the day to offer their congratulations.
