Oswestry's ambulance station will close next week despite more than 3,000 people signing a petition to stop it.
North Shropshire MP Owen Paterson said that locals hadn't been consulted about the closures.
About 50 people attended a public meeting last night to raise concerns.
Lawrence Chapelgill, one of the petition organisers, said: "It's a shame, if we could have had these discussions sooner, then maybe things would be different."
West Midlands Ambulance Service plans to shut 10 rural hubs across the region which will save £750,000.
Other sites in Shropshire including Market Drayton, Bridgnorth and Craven Arms will also shut.
