San Francisco Chronicle, April 15, 2008
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom has ordered city officials to recruit and retain more emergency dispatchers and to regularly review all medical cases in which the city failed to meet its response standard. Newsom also set deadlines for completing initiatives to reduce response times in life-threatening emergencies, including using Global Positioning System technology to better track ambulances and fire engines and stationing more emergency vehicles in busy intersections of San Francisco.
