EMS Response Times Too Slow

City Controller says they're late 40 percent of the time

In a follow-up audit of Philadelphia’s Emergency Medical Services City Controller Alan Butkovitz has found that EMS personnel are responding late to 40 percent of their calls. The issue is reportedly the result of high demand and an inadequate number of people. Welp, now the Scoop can rest easy knowing that in the case of an emergency there’s a 60 percent chance help will arrive in a timely manner. [Daily News]
