BLS-only ambulances to launch in San Antonio
SAN ANTONIO — The next time you call for an ambulance, a paramedic may not show up at your door. The San Antonio Fire Department is working on a program to save time and money.
Starting on Wednesday, 6 more ambulances will be on the road. Those 6 ambulances will be for minor emergencies. That leaves the other 32 ambulances ready to save lives.
The new ambulances are called Basic Life Support Ambulances.
The 9-1-1 dispatchers will decide which should get sent out. Chief Charles Hood says he doesn’t anticipate any problems.
