Mesa approves measure to provide funding for Fire and Medical to acquire body armors

MESA, Ariz. (KSAZ) -- An issue that came to light following the Las Vegas massacre was how to protect first responders from bullets, as they tend to the wounded.

Some agencies around the country are addressing those needs, and that includes Mesa Fire and Medical. On Monday, Mesa City Council voted, without opposition, money for Mesa Fire and Medical to acquire body armors.
