I've called for an ambulance, and when it arrived, it wasn't my regular service provider. Why is that? There are times when the EMS system has requests for service that outnumber the amount of resources that are available at that time. In situations like this, EMS services rely on outside agencies to assist covering these calls to ensure the requests for services are met in a timely fashion. Rotterdam EMS is no different.
