Walter Reed, Advanced EMT about Memorial Ambulance Corps

In this conversation, Walter and I cover a number of topics, including the following:

1. What does Memorial Ambulance Corps do? (Hint: It goes way beyond responding to 9-1-1 calls)

2. How did Memorial Ambulance get started? 

3. What happens when someone dials 9-1-1?

4. What can we all do to make sure we are prepared in the event we need to call 9-1-1?

This episode is rich in island history, stories of neighbors helping neighbors, and is full of need-to-know information. 

**For emergencies, please call 9-1-1.

The non-emergent phone number for Memorial Ambulance is:

Phone app that lists all locations of AED’s on DIS: Pulse Point AED (use the orange app, NOT the red one).
