Default Private Amb - near Boston MA - updates

Lyons Ambulance Service seems to be on 155.715 PL 127.3 presently

155.265 apparently is dead now - it used to be busy with AMR traffic from Worcester area

160.02 R - Atlantic Ambulance Service (???) has taken over the AMR repeater for Newburyport area ops

472.2875 R - Pro Ambulance Service still seems to be sharing this channel with some landscapers

Action Ambulance Service is busy on 463.475 R & 461.20 R - 453.125 R might be their wheelchair van channel

They have not. They have shut down their Newbury area office and they are considering another closure next year. They still have plenty of active service here. They have shut offices all over the country.

Trinity uses Lowell General Medics in all the towns that border Lowell; Patriot uses Lowell General Medics for Dracut. Also, Patriot uses Lawrence General Medics for Lawrence.

AMR is closing a lot offices in Eastern MA. As of right now, Newburyport, Plymouth, and Waltham divisions are closing, the cities have dumped their 911 contract with AMR. In Western MA, AMR Springfield still has Springfield, Holyoke, East Longmeadow, and Hampden. AMR Springfield lost its contract with Pittsfield to County Ambulance and its contract with Northampton to Northampton Fire Dept about 5 to 6 years ago.
