Fresno ambulance a pricey taxi ride for ‘frequent fliers’
Fresno Bee

Two homeless men in Fresno have called for an ambulance an average of nearly twice a day for more than a year, racking up hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs and even more when they get to a hospital.

They are Fresno County’s highest-volume ambulance users — “frequent fliers” as they are called in the business — and their 1,363 combined trips made up 1.34% of all American Ambulance calls in the county last year.
