Richmond is known for its historic capital building, its stately cemeteries, a world class art museum and, now, a stellar ambulance service. The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians voted to honor Richmond for innovation.
“Paramedics. What’s the address you need an ambulance to come to? Okay, tell me exactly what happened.”
Each year, more than 60,000 people in Richmond require an ambulance. That’s a big number for a city with fewer than 220,000 residents - but Danny Garrison, director of communications, says the rush hour brings a much bigger crowd.
