    Overloaded system delays ambulance response, dispatcher instructions result in blocked airway, ambulance crew terminated … another day in Detroit EMS

    The paramedic at the end of the report who pleads for the mayor to take it out on him instead of the two fired employees is the president of the EMS union.

    Hey Brother, there is always some youngster that seems to know more than the members of a department.

    Plus with his 3itching about this he may be just stirring the pot some.


    His first post after joining he is putting down the members and department.

    Probably where they should be. Working on addressing the matter through the proper channels rather than discussing it in the media at this point.

    Contrary to what some may think, every issue does not require public ranting or chest thumping from the Union, especially not at the onset. Most of the time you can make better progress via "private" discussion rather than "public" discussion of the matter.

    Not saying it's right, but the current answers are there.
    I don't see any mention of the reason for the 20 minute response time.

    I assume dispatches are recorded, so bring it to the table to defend the EMT's and their jobs.

    Sounds like you must not be on the up and up with the current state of the EMS system in Detroit. Do a little research and you will find that this isn't that uncommon of a thing to happen.
