San Leandro has just closed the city hospital which is where the ambulance base was. I have noticed foreign ambulance vehicles in our turf, like those from San Lorenzo or Hayward. Because of this change, I am guessing that the EMS will now be run out of the Fire Department, but now the medics have to cover a larger radius due to the change, AND now the nearest hospital (I'm positive) is two cities away! This is going to be bad. I can feel it.
Ambulance turf war in CA I'm guessing? Are you part of an ambulance service or just waiting to be old enough to join / work for one? Only reason I am asking is that you don't seem to know where the next closest hospital is, and that is one of those little bits of info that an EMT or Medic on a bus needs to know.
what's more amazing about your post is the fact that AMR wasn't sticking there nose into your local politics and service providers... I can think nothing but positive thoughts should the FD be in a position to handle EMS transports... CB
Sorry. I'm territorial. They have this temporary whatchicallit while they're fixing everything and now there are all these ambulances from different cities coming through ours and causing hell during traffic. Oy!
I'm wanting to become an exploerer, but technically I'm not even old enough for that. I will be fourteen in 34 days and I am positive that's where the nearest hospital is. Eden Medical Center. I do my homework. Plus, as I said to that guy, I'm only 14 and still learning as much as I can. :)
