How many times a day is a ambulence called out?
There is a clause in the FDCA that says a CA can't call excessively. However, there is no definition of what is excessive. Which translates into "as often as they choose." There's no law that says you have to talk to them though. You can use voice mail, caller ID, etc. to screen calls. The myth that… not communicating (if that's possible) with collection agencies will trigger a lawsuit, is just that a myth. You can also send a cease and desist letter. The only time they will be able to contact you after that is to inform you that legal action is being taken. ( Full Answer )

U.S., for a collection agency, they can call you until you tell them that they should never contact you again by phone. Legally, after you tell them to not call you again, they cannot. You may have tell them again a time or two, but in this country, your rights are your rights.. They are still goin…g to keep it on your credit report, and probably send bills in the mail. ( Full Answer )
Answer . The national average response time for a BLS ambulance is 10 min. Paramedics are 12-15 min.
A collection agency can (and will) call you every day if necessary. When a person owes someone else money, they are expected to pay for the services rendered. Nothing in life is ever free - we must all pay our bills and do whatever it takes, 2nd or 3rd jobs, doing away with the internet or cable tel…evision, drive less ... whatever it takes, the money must be paid to the collection agency or to whom it is due. Think of it as if someone owed you money ... you would also want to be paid and would call that person until you got paid. The question was not CAN a collection agency call, but how many times a day. If they speak to you, they are not allowed to call again that day. That is considered harrassment. ( Full Answer )
\nNot many - so get some friends to help. Answer the phone and request the collector to "not call you again" and have 3 or more witnesses on extension phones. You can't legally record it so the witness can testify you ask for no more calls.
There are a lot of symptomatic indicators, but its rare to see all of them show up. Alcohol is a Central Nervous System (CNS) depressant. So we see it inhibiting the gag reflex, slowing breathing, and generally messing with the CNS. Given enough alcohol, you will die. But how much is that? The sym…ptoms to watch out for include: . Passing out . Can't be roused . Coma (always transport for this one). . Slow breathing ( ( Full Answer )
usually its between 8am to 9pm in your time zone but look up the fair debt collcection act and it will live you a list of things collectors can and cant do.

Hi! You should state the address of where the victim is, the time the incident occured, what has happened (if you know), how old the victim is...i am pretty sure that's all you need. Hope that answers your question!!
A paramedic you retard. ------------------------------ EDIT: The person who wrote this isn't only rude, s/he's also not correct. Generally the person who drives the ambulance is most often an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) where as the Paramedic will likely be in the back with the patie…nt. The two titles are not at all the same, Paramedics receive much more training. Although that being said both positions are very important and the people in this line of work save lives everyday.

The beds in ambulances are known as gurneys; but they can also be called stretchers.
They drive very quickly and use there sirens so other cars will pull over for them to pass.
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare, meaning to walk or move about which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling.
as many times as they wish. if it's late at night a complaint can be made to the police
Kind of, you can pay for transports. At the nursing facility I work at a family pays (like renting) to have there father transported to family events and back. It is very neat but I do not know how expensive
This depends on the type of ambulance and the area it is operating in. Ambulances are either basic life support (BLS) or advanced life support (ALS). BLS trucks have EMT-basics instead of paramedics. ALS trucks legally must have one paramedic on board, and either an emt-basic in a rural setting, or …a second paramedic in a metropolitan area. However, it is all up to the agency staffing the ambulance. ( Full Answer )
According to U.S today, there is no real evidence of an average time. There is a study however of the 50 largest cities that says their average response time is 6 minutes, or around that. Hard to believe right?
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Paramedics are normally on board an ambulance. There is one of each on an Advanced Life Support (ALS) unit. A Basic Life Support (BLS) unit can consist of two EMT's and not have a paramedic on board.
You should always seek medical help immediately if you fell as though you have a medical problem. Its always better to be safe than sorry.
The FDCPA allows creditors to contact debtors as many times as needed as long as it cannot be defined as harassment. For example, a creditor/collector could probably call a dozen times within the 8:00 am to 9:00 pm time allotment without being in violation. However, they cannot call continually, for… example every hour, every half hour, etc. Persons subjected to creditor calls should bear in mind that they have no legal obligation to speak with the caller.

1) When the rescue inhaler is innefective at reversing asthma symptoms. 2) When the individual is unconscious. 3) When the individual is having an asthma attack and there is no medication ready to be given. 4) If the individual's condition seems to be rapidly deteriorating (losing consciousness, tur…ning pale/gray, breathing ceases, etc.) The best response to this question, however, is: When in doubt, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number for assistance. Better to be safe than sorry, especially in children and elderly asthma patients. ( Full Answer )
Normally, the driver is a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Paramedics are normally on board an ambulance. This is referred to as an Advanced Life Support (ALS) unit. A Basic Life Support (BLS) unit can consist of two EMT's and not have a paramedic on board. The person being treated in t…he ambulance is called the patient. ( Full Answer )
Roughly in US around 5,000 I was service manager for the largest mfg. of ambulances in the world in the mid-90's. At that time Ford would mfg. 5,000 47-A ambulance chasis of which we would purchase 2,500. The balance 2,500 would be split among the 40 (at that time) other ambulance mfgs.
If someone dies in an ambulance does the EMT call time of death or does the doctor do that after they arrive at the hospital?
What I was taught in school is that NO you can not call time of death, we are considered "Medical Investigators" if you will, not Doctors. So even if you pull a body out of the river on a rescue mission, they are freezing, non responsive you work on them, you secure their airway as unconcious patien…ts can not, tube/bag ... ABC's and get them to the hospital. And then leave it at the door because you as an EMT/Medic did your best. ( Full Answer )
American hospitals had their ambulance services founded in the 1860s, and the first motor vechicular ambulance in 1906 (Found in my EMT book, Emergency Care and Transportation of the sick and injured, Edition 10, Chapter 36, pg. 1331).
Depends on the location of the company. Most of the bigger cities have one Paramedic and one Basic on each truck. Some of the smaller cities cant afford to hire Paramedics so they just have a pair of basics on each truck. Also, each state has their own rules, and some states let each county make …their own rules. If the ambulance says either ALS, Advanced Life Support, or Paramedic anywhere on it, there is at least 1 paramedic on board, anywhere in the US. In some Michigan counties, you can staff an ALS Unit with 1 Paramedic and 1 EMT-Basic, in others you must have 2 Paramedics on board. Occasionally, there will be a 3rd rider on board too, and he or she might be a student, Basic, or 3rd Paramedic. If the ambulance does not say ALS, Advanced Life Support, or the word Paramedic on it, it is likely a Basic unit, with 2 or 3 EMT-Bs on board. They can do most of the things Paramedics do, excluding most drug administrations, IVs, EKGs, and complex Endotracheal intubations. The advantage of FD Basic Ambulances is usually response time. In a heart attack situation, for instance, a Basic unit arriving 5 minutes before an ALS unit can aid in aspirin and Nitroglycerin administration (In most counties/states), intubate an unconscious patient with a Combitube or King Airway, apply high flow Oxygen and breathe for the patient, apply AED pads, perform effective chest compressions, and shock a fibrilating heart into a rhythm, all before the paramedics arrive. I know, because we have done it, and the medics then infused the PT with cardiac drugs and I drove while the medics monitored the PT en route to the hospital (I am a Basic with 4 additional months of Paramedic training). The PT survived because of the EMTs actions. Don't get me wrong, the best case scenario for a serious medical emergency is an ALS unit on scene within 5 minutes, whether it is an FD ALS Unit or a Private Ambulance Company ALS Unit. Unfortunately, this isn't always feasible. But EMTs are trained and equipped to stabilize almost any medical situation until either an ALS Unit arrives, or the PT is transported to a Hospital. We can, for instance, administer Epinepherine to an anaphylactic PT if their airway is swelling shut, and administer oral glucose to a conscious hypoglycemic PT, buying time until either the Paramedic or ER can infuse with dextrose when we get them together with the PT. Again, a Paramedic Unit is best , but don't assume a basic Unit cannot mitigate and save lives. It happens every day. In short, if the truck says Paramedic, ALS , or Advanced Life Support on it, you either have 1, 2, or 2 Paramedics on board. If it does not, you might not have any paramedics on board, but 2 EMTs on scene is WAY better than 5 Paramedic Units 20 minutes away. ( Full Answer )

Not too many times or else no one else gets a chance to call or talk, maybe, once a day. Only a few times so that you don't annoy the radio host and so that other people have time too.
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare , meaning to walk or move abou t which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling. The word originally meant a moving hospital, which follows an army in its movements. During the American Civil Wa…r vehicles for conveying the wounded off the field of battle were called ambulance wagons. Field hospitals were still called ambulances during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 and in the Serbo-Turkish war of 187 6 even though the wagons were first referred to as ambulances about 1854 during the Crimean War.

It is hard to answer that question. Almost every 15 seconds somewhere in the US there is an ambulance going out to rescue someone from an emergency. A patient could clinically die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency ro…om where a physician can pronounce them dead. So it depends on your meaning. for clinical death, it is not that rare anymore to get pulses back with all the drugs and tools a paramedic has at their disposal. Nobody legally dies in the back of an ambulance. ( Full Answer )

This is a very broad question. It usually depends on the state and previous case law in that state. 5 times usually isn't harassment, 20 times is. And then were the calls just no answer or was there a live contact or a voicemail left? Because then the # goes down significantly. Experience: I own …a collection agency. ( Full Answer )
They should not be calling repeatedly during the day, nor at unreasonable times. If they keep calling in one single day, then it's a form of creditor harassment, you should keep notes of the time of each call and who you spoke to, and complain to the creditor or a professional body.
