WATCH: Firefighters publicizing concerns over ambulance wait times
VANCOUVER — The Firefighters Association is taking their concerns over BC Ambulance wait times to the public. The association is airing radio and newspaper ads, warning people of what it calls dangerous and lengthy delays. BC Ambulance Services says changes to how they respond to some non-critical calls are fine and patients aren’t suffering. But firefighters say safety is being compromised by response times that often don’t meet the Canadian standard of nine minutes of less.
