Downtown Calgary gets special ambulance

Postby five_alarm » Wed Jun 28, 2006 12:12 pm

CALGARY, AB - Downtown Calgary will soon have its own EMS specialty team to treat its social ills in an effort to ease strain on hospitals and emergency services. The Centre City Team will drive around in a special ambulance, a miniature version of the ones commonly used, and will respond directly to problems and patients in the downtown core, said EMS spokesman Ben Morgan. “They have received special training in dealing with the challenges of the downtown needs,” said Morgan. “They will assess the needs of people who don’t necessarily need a hospital or police.”
