Ambulance Service is Missing Goals

I didn’t blog about this earlier because I figured the article would eventually show up online. So far, no dice.

According to an article by Deena Winter in yesterday’s Journal Star titled “Ambulance response times lag, study finds”, Lincoln Fire and Rescue has failed to have an ambulance on scene in eight minutes or less 90 percent of the time. As Ms. Winter puts it,

That means firefighters’ promise to voters in 2001—that they would handle the ambulance service “faster, better and cheaper” than the private company that had it—has failed on at least two of those counts.

On the plus side, data show that the first paramedic on the scene arrives by firetruck within 8 minutes 95 percent of the time.
