First off, they have a fleet of 40 ambulances, more than the fire department, meda-care combined, yup, you may see them in accidents, it happens, i'd be willing to bet they have more driver training programs, and safety measures than the fire department. As far as the neighbors? I'm betting Bell was there long before they moved in, should have done your research before moving to the area. The Bills? Determined largely by their contract wth the city. When it comes to private ambulances, no one provides more training, has nicer ambulances, an better equipmnt, also, no one pays their employees more, or has better benefits for their people. When Flight for Life isn't flying, who gets the call? The Critical Care Paramedcs from Bell. Even Childrens Hospital trusts only Bell with their transfers.
