Detroit EMS response time, worst in America

The worst I have witnessed in Detroit is four hours.

Average response time is 35 - 60 minutes, if you are forced to call an ambulance.

Police and Fire fighters refuse to call or wait, when they have a man down.

Could faster EMS response time have saved Detroit man? | News - Home

The thing that got delayed the most was Christie's presidential hope, like all the way until never.

I'm East Side. Where I can be the city redneck in my back yard: five minutes from DownTown, 20 from the beach and 40 from the mountains...

according to other threads on here, unless the ambulance is a DUKW amphibious truck, then they probably have to detour around the 10k flooded street water crossings we've been hearing about.
