The petition you signed to amend the emergency ambulance service was enacted by the DeKalb County Department of Public Safety!
The new regulation requires the paramedical to transport you to the nearest medical facility that is equipped to treat your condition. The patient may choose which facility to be transported to regardless of whether there is a bed available
These valuable lifesaving moments in transporting you to the nearest facility so that a doctor can stabilize your condition eliminates the diversionary tactics employed by hospitals. When your condition has been stabilized they can move you to another facility that has a bed available.
Another situation where your civic awareness gets results!
