"Tucson Fire Department ambulances failed more than half the time to reach emergencies within the eight-minute goal recommended by a national industry group". Other ambulance operators missed the target too. The Arizona Daily Star requested and obtained CAD (Computer-aided Dispatch) database of emergency medical runs from the city of Tucson, which allowed them to map the average response times by each quarter-mile section of the city.
