Proposed increase in Houston Fire Department ambulance fees

- The Houston Fire Department is proposing a major increase in ambulance fees in the hopes that it will deter people from calling 911 to use the City of Houston's emergency medical services as a convenience. Houston paramedics say that over the last year, they have responded 30,000 times to 911 calls that did not require people to be transported to the hospital.

Houston City Council member Michael Kubosh discusses the proposal with Isiah Carey.
