City commmissioners in North Port Monday night heard about a study that would improve ambulance and fire coverage over the city’s 105 square miles.

The main purpose of the study done by the consulting company Fitch & Associates was to make suggestions on how to maintain or improve response times, especially in the fast-growing West Villages area.

The main recommendations that came out of the study were to add 12-hour ambulances to the station on Prince Road and improving certification of emergency responders serving on fire engines at a pair of other stations.
