Guest Host: Jennifer Golbeck

DC’s Fire and EMS Department has faced criticism for system failures, vehicles in poor condition and slow response times. The department hopes to address some of those issues with reforms aimed at relieving pressure on the system, including using alternative transportation for calls not requiring an ambulance and introducing a nurse triage system. We speak to DC Fire and EMS Chief Gregory Dean and the Interim Medical Director Robert Holman about improving the system.
