“We have got to have ambulance services,” Peggy Malone, the president of the Crozer-Chester Nurses Association, said. “Nobody should wait 30 minutes, 40 minutes when you have a loved one having a heart attack waiting for someone to get to your door to try to save their life. We’re not going to stand for this. Not for our community, and not for our behavioral health patients.”
