Improve EMS Response Times

Improve ambulance response times to provide better pre-hospital care for residents of Athens. Our private, for profit ambulance provider routinely puts profit above public safety by abandoning emergency response zones and pulling 911 ambulances to run profitable, non-emergency transports. We will demand transparency of 911 medical response time data, require that all 911 medical calls be handled by the ACC 911 Dispatch Center, and insist that National EMS run a priority 911 ambulance service by establishing separate emergency and non-emergency divisions.
