Excellent Response

Aug 29, 2018

To the Editor:

In response to Charles Howe’s column (“Small Towns, Volunteer EMS Are Caught in the Crosshairs,” 822): To set the onset of service/response time from the time of ambulance/transport arrival is an error commonly made. EMS care onset begins at the time of first responder arrival.

From my time in Surf City, I have noted excellent/short response times to 911 calls. The volunteer services serve Surf City well.
