INDIANAPOLIS (www.incnow.tv) – The Indianapolis Fire Rescue House is asking residents to help raise money to honor two EMS members killed on the job.

Back in February, EMT Tim McCormick and Paramedic Cody Medley were killed when their ambulance was hit by a car in downtown Indianapolis.

The Fire Rescue House originally planned to have the intersection where they were killed be re-named after the two men, but now, Rescue officials says they want to put a blue sign near the intersection that reads "McCormick and Medley EMS Highway.”

The organization has been raising money for the sign and the sign manufacturer already knocked off several hundred dollars, but they're still $600 short and now they're asking for the public's help.

The organization says if enough money is raised, the memorial sign will be installed in mid-July at a special ceremony to honor both Tim McCormick and Cody Medley.
