Guam - The Guam Fire Department currently has six ambulances in operation today, but the ongoing problem with units breaking down as prompted at least one lawmaker to call for some oversight on the matter. Republican senator Ray Tenorio sent a letter to GFD oversight chair Senator Adolpho Palacios, requesting that he get to the bottom of issue surrounding the shortage of ambulances. Tenorio says he heard the concerns of the shortage over weekend from patients while at the Guam Memorial Hospital.

He stated, "The people of Guam can't afford to wait, especially with the number of people that we have in our communities that are waiting for ambulances that have accidents or any kind of injuries."

Meanwhile, Palacios says he has already begun working out the issue with GFD on what they can do to tap into the FLAME Fund.
