Silence the sirens and be mindful out there… these abandoned, closed and condemned ambulance & EMS stations no longer reply to medical emergencies.
Condemned In California

The condemned former American Health care Response substation at at 455 Beverly Location in Tracy appears rather very good for an abandoned constructing. Then once again, these pictures from the November 29th, 2013 edition of the Tracy Press had been taken less than a week soon after the doors slammed shut. Supposedly, the station was condemned due to the presence of a huge tree on the residence that may well fall above in a gale. It’s well worth noting that the station’s proprietor condemned the creating city inspectors found no serious structural harm and therefore no justification for closing it.

Ahh, the eternal struggle amongst wanting your neighborhood EMS station to be as close as feasible and wanting your neighborhood EMS station to be as QUIET as achievable. Sorry friends, by no means the twain shall meet. The eardrum conundrum evidently proved also aggravating for a single resident who in 2010 declared (in a drunken, late-night tirade in front of Tracy City Council) that getting an ambulance station near his home has turned his life into “13 years of hell.” He must be in heaven now.

The UK’s NHS (Nationwide Wellness Services) has been praised and vilified to the extreme – usually by the exact same men and women based on whether or not they want its providers or have just read the most recent tale of wasted taxpayer’s cash. Tongues are wagging when once again due to the NHS’s (supposed) cash-saving ideas to close dozens of ambulance stations across the Uk and consolidate their functions at larger “hub” stations. The strategy could without a doubt conserve cash but any person and everyone will end up waiting longer for an ambulance as a result. Thanks, Obama!
Ghostbusters Of OZ

If the original Ghostbusters drove a modified ambulance and had their HQ in an previous firehouse, a single would assume their Australian counterparts (currently being “down under”) would park their custom-made firetruck in an old ambulance station. Great point, as the outdated Queensland Ambulance Support station complicated on Downs Street in North Ipswich is explained to be haunted by the ghost of WC Tomkins. The former station superintendent lived upstairs at the station and passed away in his bed one particular evening in 1934… and, some say, he’s still there.

“This ghost has in no way harm any person and I do not believe he would,” states renowned hauntings historian Jack Sim (above). “He founded the ambulance in Ipswich and he is a wonderful bloke.” Maybe the station’s supposed supernatural aura assisted hold it on the auction block for the far better component of 6 years. All great factors should come to an finish, however, and Beetlejuice himself couldn’t cease the station from ultimately being offered in March of 2013 for a amazing 1 million smackers.

Because the previous ambulance station on Osborne Street in Hull, England closed, the only emergencies occurring at the internet site concern Phil Jude’s 24-hour Emergency Boarding Up Service… or so the signal above states. Get it from Phil, they’re “probably the cheapest in the location.”
