A few weeks ago, our dear friend found his father deceased in bed.
After regaining some composure, he dialed 911, and they sent an ambulance.
EMS arrived, and the staff was very professional and offered their condolences. EMS informed our friend that it would cost $1,000 for them to take his father to the hospital to be pronounced, which, in turn, would create a hospital charge.
There was no way our friend could afford the EMS charge, so EMS suggested calling the Rescue Squad.
