DELAFIELD, Wisc. — Fire Chief Jack Edwards's skills as an entrepreneur is one of the reasons he was appointed fire chief in the City of Delafield in 2006 and was later named chief of Lake Country Fire and Rescue. Edwards acknowledges that those skills are going to come in handy during the next year.

Lake County Fire and Rescue (LCFR) has recently lost about $100,000 in revenue as a result of contract terminations. About $70,000 in revenue was lost when the Aurora Medical Center in Summit notified the department that it no longer wanted to pay a retainer for LCFR paramedic ambulance service. The retainer fee assured the hospital that LCFR would respond with a paramedic ambulance and crew within 30 minutes of the hospital's request to assist in the non emergency transfer of a patient.
