The state health department is investigating Dallas Fire-Rescue over complaints of improper patient medical care dating back to at least 2016.

In separate reviews byTexas’ Department of State Health Services, four fire department employees since April have had their paramedic licenses placed on probation, including two staffers who were on scene during the 2016 killing of Tony Timpa in Dallas.
