The City of Muncie, Ind., held an open house to show off a fleet of new ambulances that officials hope will begin service in the city’s underserved areas by next month. The city previously relied on Delaware County for ambulance service, but train tracks near some locations cause delays for units coming into the city, according to Ball State Daily.

The new program is controversial, with some residents posting on the city's Facebook page stating they were concerned about costs.

These ambulances will only provide basic life support, and the city will continue to contract with an outside provider to provide advanced life support service, The Star Press reported.
