"Public Safety, a serious issue especially for the elderly!"

Brighton, a neighborhood of 45,000 has no public ambulance service available within the boundaries of 02135. Allston/Brighton is also without an Advanced Life Support ambulance. Residents must relay on paramedic units responses that are 12-15 minutes away at a minimum. Allston and Brighton's combined population is almost 65,000 and would rank within the top 20 neighborhoods in the Commonwealth and yet it would be the only one without a Paramedic Medical Unit to service the populace.
  • Lack of a reasonable response to medical emergencies
