DETROIT — It's a problem that Fox 2 has been exposing for several years. Detroit's broken down ambulances are putting lives in jeopardy. City leaders tell us they're working to improvethe system.
But residents say it's getting worse. Now the feds are now launching an investigation. Following Charlie's story, Fox 2 received a response from Dr. Jenny Atlas, Medical Director for Detroit East Medical Control Authority:
"It is my great privilege and pleasure to work with the Detroit EMS as the Medical Director for Detroit East Medical Control Authority (MCA). It is my responsibility to ensure that the technicians are trained to deal with medical emergencies from broken ankles to heart attacks and serious trauma. In addition, it is the role of the MCA to develop and implement protocols to support these activities."
