Significantly fewer ambulance companies exist in New Jersey today than a year ago. Estimates of the amount of closures range from 25 to 50 firms---with more likely closing in the future. 

Some have closed their doors quickly without any advanced notice, leaving patients and their families in a dangerous limbo.
