From Avaaz:

“A medical director of DC emergency medical services just released a scathing resignation saying “people are dying needlessly because we’re moving too slow”. There are obvious solutions – but internal politics are holding up reform.

To DC Mayor Muriel Bowser:

We call on you to enact bold reform to address the egregious state of Washington D.C.’s Emergency Medical Service. EMS should operate independently from the fire department, and both the fire department and EMS should have all the resources they need to respond excellently to the city’s calls for help.

Sign and share the urgent petition with everyone.”
