KANAWHA COUNTY, W.V. — Employees of privately owned, Ohio-based Life Ambulance service say they aren’t listening to police scanners in an attempt to hijack wreck victims and whisk them off to the hospital.
“I’ve never jumped a call in my life,” said Cody Byrd, a 35-year-old Putnam County EMT who also works for Life Ambulance. “We’re not allowed to carry scanners, two-way radios or pagers. If we do, we get fired.”
