AMR VS. Fire Department For Emergency Response
AMR VS. Fire Department For Emergency Response

Listen
AIR DATE: April 1, 2014

For years, emergency services were split between the Las Vegas Fire Department and a private ambulance service, American Medical Response.

Both organizations get the emergency dispatch call and whoever gets there first takes the patient to the hospital. And if you haven’t seen it before, it happens quite often --- that two emergency vehicles will show up to one incident. Why the duplication of services?
