Do diversions happen? Yes. Everyday. But if you call 911 in no way in fucking hell would we say “sorry call an Uber” “or sorry we have no ambulances” it’s called being in medic overload. And the second the last medic gets called into service we announce to the chief over the radio that we are in medic overload and the chief orders mutual aid. That means I call neighboring city’s and they send ambulances to sit in our stations to be called out. Do not get scared to call 911 that we will “run out” of ambulances for you. I promise we will not. At the VERY end of the day an engine will take you. You will never ever be denied help. It’s quiet literally illegal. don’t be scared!!

Does that affect response times? If you’re borrowing from neighboring municipalities, what happens if the whole region is seeing the same overload? Does that change the “waiting for triage” problem once you get to the hospital? I mean, you’re right, you probably can get a BLS crew to a site and delivered to a hospital, but the resource overload and its deleterious effect on patient care is REAL. Even when folks are doing their best and working REALLY HARD to shine despite resource issues and not let care suffer. Acknowledging that does not make any of the people in that response chain weak or bad at their job, it just means that this thing is bigger than you can fix by yourself
