Some people call for they don't have to wait in a

hospital emergency room.

But....that doesn't always work.

Buddy Kasinger is with the LaPorte County Emergency Medical Service.

Instead of coming in by car.......Kasinger says some people think if they show up

in an ambulance.....they'll see a doctor much sooner.

But.....that doesn't work if the emergency room is full of people just as sick......

If not sicker.....

Kasinger says that's one of the reasons calls to EMS are much higher nowadays.

Other reasons include people not wanting to make the drive when it's snowing
