When you call 911 for an ambulance in many Potter County communities, what is the average response time? I heard someone in the know claim that it can be a 45 minutes to an hour, even when the incident is 5 or 10 minutes away. Is that true?

Solomon's words for the wise said...

Roulette's response time is about 3 minutes. Some of the other ambulances take longer.

The companies in Potter Co are volunteer companies with the exception of Coudersport who has a paid daytime crew. It is very hard to find people who want to volunteer anymore. Most would rather sit home and complain because an ambulance service is not getting out. So, yes to your question, it could take 45 minutes - hour before an ambulance gets to you. It has nothing to do if you are 5 miles away or 30 miles away. It all depends on who’s available. Would you like an application or know someone who may? I’m pretty sure all the departments are accepting applications. Not just for the ambulance companies but the fire companies as well.
