No More Ambulances

So what happens when the agency that has contracted with the county to provide emergency ambulance service fails to staff even half of the required rigs?

I'll tell you. The Chief gets a phone call and is asked if my department can staff ambulances for them! And then the firefighter paramedics get phone calls saying that they have to come into work. Even if they were on their way home from a 96 hour shift and an hour away from the nearest station.

I ended up staffing one of our ambulances. I think there was a plan to actually place our paramedics onto AMR's ambulances. I don't know if this happened. Thankfully my shift was boring. For the most part I got to watch football. It still wasn't where I wanted to be.
