Mayor says he’s OK with time it took ambulance to reach wife
San Francisco Chronicle

One week after critics called for her resignation over ambulance response times, Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White is defending her agency again, this time over whether it got an ambulance quickly enough to a car crash involving Mayor Ed Lee’s wife on Monday afternoon.

No one was seriously injured in the crash, but information from the Fire Department indicated that it took 12 minutes for the first ambulance to arrive.
