Riverside County First Responders Frustrated by Ambulance Delays
California Healthline

In Riverside County and across the state, ambulances that have transported patients to hospitals are not zipping off to help others in need. Instead, they are being delayed at those same hospitals, sometimes for up to six hours. In areas with the worst delays, emergency response systems can be nearly paralyzed, straining the capacity of first responders, officials said.
