Pinellas County is changing how it responds to some 911 calls.
Starting June 1, only ambulances will be dispatched to low-priority medical calls, such as falls or people who are sick.
Right now, fire trucks are sent with that ambulance, which costs the county $40 million a year.
Fire districts will still be notified of each call, and they can decide to send a truck if they feel it's necessary.
The city of St. Petersburg is opposed to the idea – and could even bring a lawsuit to stop it.
