  • Mobile County gearing up for more emergency calls

    SEMMES, Ala. (WKRG) -- Mobile County EMS is gearing up to respond to more calls. Starting in September, the county will be primarily responsible for medical calls outside mobile city limits.

    The change means the county could respond to more than 6,000 additional calls per year. In order to deal with the increased calls, the county is expanding its staff.

    Mobile County EMS Executive Director Mark Turner said,"We kind of look at our demand versus staffing analysis and then we try to figure out how many people we might need exactly to cover that area."

    Starting September 1st, Mobile County will respond to all emergency medical calls outside Mobile's city limits. The change, mainly impacting the Theodore area, is expected to increase Mobile County's calls by 30%. Turner said more calls means more people needed to answer and respond to them. He said, "It's something that we'll have to absorb into our operating costs for this year because obviously, we had to hire now before the new budget year starts in October." 


  • FBI fires Peter Strzok in wake of anti-Trump text messages

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Peter Strzok, a longtime FBI agent who was removed from the Russia investigation over anti-Trump text messages, has been fired by the agency, his lawyer said Monday.

    The FBI had been reviewing Strzok’s employment after the politically charged text messages were discovered last year. President Donald Trump’s allies have seized on the texts, saying they show the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia is tainted by political bias.

    Strzok was fired late Friday by FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich, said his lawyer, Aitan Goelman. He said the 21-year veteran of the FBI was removed because of political pressure and “to punish Special Agent Strzok for political speech protected by the First Amendment.”
