Ambulance service is a "side line" of the fire department Lcthhridgc.

The case." 13 Martin Brothers Ltd. Funeral purchased Mar. ct truck 9GG. Last year, the department re- sponded to calls and con veyed patients. On 103 occasions, first aid treatment rendered and on 46 oc- casions, inhalators were used to give the patients oxygen. That works out to one ambulance call every G.4 hours. Chief Russell said the aver- age time per call, that is the Lime from the moment the call is received to the moment the ambulance returns tn the fire station after conveying the pa- tients, is 27 minutes. "Because we are humans. I will not deny the fact that sometimes it may take up lo 20 minutes for the ambulance lo arrive at the scene, but un- der normal circumstances, all calls v.ill be responded to with- in 10 minutes in the the chief said. Wailing for ambulance lo ar- rive is a very personal thing, Chief Russell said. If one's dear ones are injured, "live minutes may seem 20 minutes to he said. Chief Ttusscll said 93 per cent iiTviee provides ambulance service for emergency trips lo Calgary if the patients nee.l .pccial'iKMl emergency treat- ment such as neurosurgery, Chief Russell said. Ncurosur- gery is not performed in Lclh- bridgc. Because the city has two ambulances, the fire depart- ment cannot risk settling one ambulance lo Calgary, leaving only one other lo handle the j calls. Chief Russell's thinking is that the city should have three ambulances, enabling it to send one to Calgary if required. The County of he said, should made to pay its part for Ihc ambulance ser- vice. Persons who subscribe lo Al- berta Health Care Insurance may have ambulance fee coverage every year. The city charges S15 per cal1. SI per return mile outside city limits. Martin Brothers charges be- tween and for a trip to Calgary. Chief Russell said if the city hauls patients to Cal- gaiy it would not charge thai much. Ambulance service is in fact making money for the fire de- partment, although it depends on the method of interpretation of the accounting procedures, the chief said. Before the Alberta Health Care Insurance came in, the city charged per city call. Mr. RuSvSell said the exist- ing bookkeeping is such that the ambulance service needs no have applied fur the ex- perimental and demonstration projects.
