Last month, the Burlington County Times reported that the Delran, NJ Emergency Squad had its licensed suspended by the New Jersey Department of Health.
Their chief would ride a long and treat patients on a regular basis. What's wrong with that you ask? Nothing, except his EMT license had been expired since December of 2010.
To cover their tracks, the squad would then alter trip reports to claim that only credentialed employees had done the runs.

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.
