Flu keeping ambulances working overtime
MILWAUKEE- The Flu has been keeping Bell Ambulance busy recently.
The company said that last week was their busiest week in thirty-plus years of business. Tuesday was the single busiest day.
Bell added that they have brought in extra staff during the week and on the weekend to cope.
The extra work has in turn created logistical issues while trying to keep up with ambulance maintenance and stocking of supplies.
Paramedics are wearing standard surgical masks and goggles in an effort to not get sick and prevent a spread of the virus.
