London fire union: ambulance shortages will lead to deaths
Longer response time and ambulance availability worrisome to fire officials
The Romford Recorder
LONDON — A senior member of the Fire Brigade Union has said it is "only a matter of time" before people start dying because the London Ambulance Service is taking too long to respond to call-outs.
Firefighter Dave Neicho, the FBU's branch chairman at Ilford Fire Station, told how his colleagues battled to keep a seriously injured crash victim in Hall Lane, Upminster, conscious for more than an hour after being told no ambulances were available.
