Description

Davis reports that "emergency medical services in the nation's 50 largest cities are fragmented, inconsistent and slow, costing more than 1,000 lives each year." According to the report, "the problems are rooted in easy-to-fix areas, including turf battles between emergency agencies, inaccurate measurement of response times and survival rates, and lack of community leadership."
