12:40 pm
course and i thought all right i'll do it took the class just to get a license to try to get hired i was only thing i was planning on doing it was just using the license to get out and it turned out that i thoroughly enjoyed the events aspect of it as well with my job where it was that it started with an ambulance company making those five bucks an hour for about four years five years which a lot of us had to do. i think. our fire code has played an important role in driving down the volume and spirit of fires and because that is the reality that we need is more ambulances. ten years ago with half the evidence is that we have now now we have all of them see medical services in the city of los angeles. from the time you dial nine one one here in our dispatch center tell the time you get to the hospital it's one service the one you want to family member to come with you to the hospital we want him to know.

12:43 pm
emergency room. the reality is is that these people don't have primary care physicians that they can call so you're going to end up in the emergency room and i think that if we had a system where everyone had. access to care they would. this would not be happening because they would they would call their doctor. rescue researchers for using a rescue. like person i love or. rather . right right very. wrong. really sees a way too much that we are. what we're saying now that sort of breath just being
