For today’s Talk Back, we want to hear about your experiences with 911 services in your city. Los Angeles is considering a plan to hand off low-urgency calls to a nurse practitioner and paramedic. The move could save money and result in fewer trips to the hospital.
What do you think? Do paramedics and firefighters need to respond to emergencies? Would you be comfortable with a nurse practitioner responding to a 911 call? Share your thoughts with us on Twitter with the tag #EssentialCalifornia or send us an email: Alice Walton and Shelby Grad.
