On sirens and ambulance response times


I’m not sure sirens, at least in Richmond, improve ambulance response times—it’s more the opposite, because cars tend to stop where they are, in the road, instead of pulling over.

How many times do ambulances wait, stuck, for police to direct cars out of the way?

Downgrade all Richmond ambulance calls to non-siren for fastest possible times, I say!
