CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

One day after CBS 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reported on the latest victim of the city’s ambulance shortage — the case of a heart attack victim who nearly died waiting for an ambulance — the city added five new ambulances to the streets, but is that enough?

Even after the addition of five ambulances, Chicago’s ratio of ambulances per 100,000 people ranks below four major cities …

New York City 5.1/100K (438 ambulances)
Houston 3.9/100K (91 ambulances)
Los Angeles 3.6/100K (134 ambulances)
Philadelphia 3.3/100K (50 ambulances)
Chicago 2.7/100K (75 ambulances)
Chicago 2.9/100K (80 ambulances)

The five ambulances placed in service provisionally, effective August 1, 2018 are …

Ambulance 76 at Engine Co. 115;s quarter at 11940 South Peoria Street,

Ambulance 77 at Engine Co. 38’s quarters at 3949 West 16th Street,

Ambulance 78 at Engine Co. 88’s quarters at 3637 West 59th Street,

Ambulance 79 at Engine Co. 121’s quarters at 1724 West 95th Street, and

Ambulance 80 at Engine Co. 107’s quarters at 1101 South California Avenue.

None of the new Dodge chassis ambulances were on display or visible in the the CBS Chicago report.

The following ambulances signatures are known to have recently changed over to the new Dodge chassis …

Ambulance 20 at Engine Co. 86’s quarters at 3918 North Harlem Avenue,

Ambulance 34 at Engine Co. 109’s quarters at 2343 South Kedzie Avenue, and

Ambulance 53 at Engine Co. 14’s quarters at 1129 West Chicago Avenue.
