That’ll pair perfectly with the 1/3 of Metro shut down at any given second.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Nearly a third of the District’s basic life support ambulances are out of service for repairs, a situation that couldn’t come at a worse time, union officials said.
The shortage of transport units comes as a heat advisory has been issued and the fire department is reporting an unusually high number of calls.
As of Tuesday morning, seven of the 25 basic life support units were out of service because of mechanical problems, Smith said. He was told that most of the units were out because of the air conditioner in the patient compartment.
City rules prohibit the use of an ambulance if the air conditioner unit is broken in the patient area.”
