Can Scooters & Electric Wheelchairs be Transported by Ambulance & Medical Car?

Posted by On Time Ambulance on 3/1/17 1:01 PM

 

Whenever we book a wheelchair transport trip involving an electronic wheelchair, we first determine the specific make and model of the chair.

Our lifts can accommodate chairs up to 32 inches total in width (including the outside of the tires). This is a standard size and does not vary. Sometimes electric wheelchairs are too wide to fit on a standard sized lift.

The Politics of Upgrading NJ's 911 System

Posted by On Time Ambulance on 12/13/16 2:39 PM

It’s never been more important to upgrade and optimize our 911 system for cell phones. Seventy percent of emergency calls now come in that way. We also need to be able to text, send pictures, and give dispatchers the ability to geo-locate cell phones like is available in many other states.

You can currently text 911 in some counties in NJ. But the system, developed in the 1980s, cannot track where exactly the calls or texts come from. It can only provide a range. The whole grid needs to be revamped for it to work more efficiently.

But if something looks too good to be true --- it probably is.
