  1. What % of those calls benefit those *outside* of our community? What % of those calls are to provide non emergent services? What is the average response time of the (usually better trained and equipped) numerous other emergency medical service providers in the Lakewood area? Finally, at what cost to the community are the remaining minority of calls which are actually providing a service – better response time in providing emergent services to members of our community?

  2. I’m not sure what point anon 8:14 is trying to make, however, show me another squad in the state that has a pedi Dr, emergancy rm Dr, a PA, a dentist, 10 Paramedics and 34EMT’s!

    sounds to me like you werent good enough to get on…… get over it!

  3. I’m not sure what the heck anon 8:14 is talking about but I would suggest we dispatch a rig to this guy cause its seems that he may have some trauma to his head….

  4. 8:14 the next time you have an emergency call lkwd ems they will take there time coming to you and than u will regret to not to call hatzolah just see

  5. The average response time is a garbage stat – they measure the arrival of the first yoyo with a bag and not the arrival of the bus.

  6. the response time to any location south of prospect street, is still 4-6 minutes. they will not admit it but ask the people that call or listen for yourself…..
