INDIANAPOLIS – The city of Indianapolis will pass a resolution Monday night honoring the services of two EMS workers killed in an ambulance crash on Feb. 16.

In the resolution, the City-County Council “celebrates the life, honor and passion” of IEMS Private Timothy McCormick, EMT-B, and Specialist Cody Medley, EMP-P. Proposal 13-093 also “extends comfort to their families and all those who love them.”

The Indy Fire Rescue House collaborated with IEMS and councilors on the resolution, which will be heard at 7 p.m.

McCormick and Medley died after their ambulance collided with a car on Feb. 16  at the intersection of St. Clair Street and Senate Avenue downtown. The accident happened at 3:37 a.m.

The council is still exploring options to create a memorial way on Senate Avenue, although Monday night’s proposal doesn’t cover that aspect.

      They saved lives. I bet you wouldn't be ranting and raving if they were the EMT's who showed up to save your life, or a family members life in an emergency. Two fine men lost their lives, show some respect man.
