Can fire trucks and ambulances get to me in time?

I noticed one lane of the bridge across Sugar Creek on U.S. 231 has been closed. What if I have a medical emergency or a fire where I live out north?

Should be no problem.
"It creates a delay," said Crawfordsville Fire Chief Larry Patton. "Not much, but some. For our EMS side - last week we didn't have many runs and I never heard the guys say it was a problem. We had no fire runs in that direction last weekend when the northbound lanes were closed. This weekend the southbound lanes will be closed so it won't be as much of a problem. We do have to slow down at that intersection, though."
