It was always a free service. We never asked for money. Clinics all knew us because they could not call for or use the EMS ambulances to transport somebody from a clinic to the local hospital of their choosing. They had to be taken to the nearest hospital, so they would call us, and we’d take them wherever the patient needed to go — within reason. Certain firemen and policemen knew us. We were allowed to take out police walkie-talkies from our local precinct so we could listen for reports by the cops of accidents and injuries as they were happening and just jump on them. By essentially “jumping” the EMS calls, we were getting even better experience in emergency care as well as helping to lower response times for the victims, which in many cases, saved lives.
