Description

The Virginia Beach Emergency Response System operates with a set of volunteers. This investigation reveals that this system is lax and is outdated. They revealed that the response team took longer than the ideal 6 minutes. Since the volunteers had regular day time jobs, there were as few as 5 of the 32 ambulances operational during the day. After this series was aired, the city considered adopting certain changes in the emergency system.
