We are a private ambulance service who contracts with the county. It is the countys responsibility to ensure EMS services to its citizens by sending their own resources that taxpayers pay for, as well as contracting services as needed. The Fire department has trained Paramedics and EMTs who can usually get to a call faster than the Ambulance and initiate care. They respond to any 911 medical call, from a stubbed toe to cardiac arrest. We can cancel each other once on scene when appropriate.

Can we change traffic lights?
Although most lights around have the capability, our ambulance does not have an opticom
