CLEVELAND - Beginning Monday, Cleveland Fire Department rescue squads will be replaced by an EMS unit as part of the city's merger plans.
City officials say 70 percent of the calls to the fire department are now medical and that the merger will enhance services.
The firefighters union wants the merger postponed for public hearings and discussion.
Mayor Frank Jackson said he's committed to moving forward with the plan.
