crew swerved and over corrected during that swerve and ended up
rolling the ambulance," says Ross Bradley, V.P. Chief Operations
The exact cause for the accident is still under investigation, but some are questioning the physical condition of the driver.
"The guys do work a 24-hour shift. They come prepared to work that 24-hour shift," says Bradley.
It may seem like a long shift to an average nine to fiver, but the crews benefit from plenty of down time and even sleeping on the job.
"We don't have a strong policy against crews being able to nap during the day. In fact, we encourage that," explains Bradley.
Obviously every work day is dependent on what happens in community, but Guardian does their best to maintain a sense of consistency.
"We monitor our call volumes to make ensure that the call volumes for each truck is where is should be. And typically what we like to see is six calls for each truck for every 24-hour shift," says Bradley.
While the actual truck will probably be totaled, the vehicle is actually in pretty good shape.
"Very little damage to the box and that's probably what saved the crews life, is having very high quality equipment," says Bradley.
There were no injuries in the crash, but this accident wasn't the first one for Brown County EMS.
"December 8, 2000, mine was due at 30 mph in an ice storm, I rolled an ambulance myself, " says Jimmy Trowbirdge.
Accidents happen, but it's results are what matter most.
"Fortunately nobody got hurt today. So we all get to go home, that's the biggest part of it," says Trowbirdge.
