    On January 26, town officials signed the contracts that will launch a new regional paramedic intercept program that will operate out of the Danbury Hospital and serve the towns of Newtown, Bethel, and Redding.

That cost will decrease if other towns choose to join. The benefits of the program are incalculable.
