What If Ambulance Service Was Gone….. Overnight

EMS1Think about. What if all of a sudden dozens of shifts and their personnel where no longer responding to emergencies?

Well, in this case it’s an not “if”. It’s more of a “it did” and a “why”.

Why did it happen, why wasn’t there warning and why wasn’t one of the largest providers of EMS to the public, FDNY better prepared.

Take a listen to this weeks podcast as Jim, Josh and Dave discuss the sudden bankruptcy of Transcare in NYC, how it took many by surprise including it’s employees and the FDNY.

  1. Just a quick note. I was told they went Chapter 7 not 11. Chapter 7 allowed for the results we witnessed, an overnight stop of service. Chapter 11 implies the company is willing to work out its issues in court/has time to do so. Chapter 7 is the “I give up” of bankruptcy, where creditors swoop in for their cash and the company implodes.
