Q. How to design and run a Ambulance Service effectively.

Different Models, Costs, Safety features, Planning, Strategy, Promotions, Partnerships, Risks etc...
AHmm... this website ( http://www.cms.hhs.gov/center/ambulance.asp ) contains a lot of information about how to run an ambulance service, from addresses to fee tables.

Hope I could help!

Q. is this a free service?

A1yes this is a 100% free site
A2:) from your question i presume you think that the people that answer you are doctors... that's not true, usually we are a bunch of people sharing the same fate. if you ask about high blood pressure- a good chance that people with high blood pressure will answer you. so ask away, free of charge...if someone ask you to pay up- just tell them to put the tab on Justin..:)

Q. I am very much interested in social service. Especially I like helping the alcoholic.

I am very much interested in social service. Especially I like helping the alcoholic. So does a person have to be alcoholic to experience problems from alcohol?
A1ALCOHOLISM is a big problem all over the world, but in the united states it is very bad, WHAT people dont know about alcohol is the problem. We all ways here about (cocaine)(crack)(herion)(speed)ect.BUT do you know that there are less of those addicts than there are alcoholics?DO you know how many people die each year from alcohol related death,the number is equile to or more than the amount of our soldiers killed in war.DO you know that more women end up in the hospitals,from being abused from there men getting drunk,find out how many babys are born each year with fetal alcohol syndrom(drinking while pregnant? It is good that you are interected in social service we need more young people willing to be part of stopping the problem,and not causing it----mrfoot56
A2First I like to appreciate your whole hearted service. The answer for your question is a ‘No’. Even if you are not alcoholic, abusing alcohol can have negative results, such failure to meet major work, school, or family responsibilities because of drinking; alcohol-related legal trouble; automobile crashes due to drinking; and a variety of alcohol-related medical problems. Under some circumstances, problems can result from even moderate drinking--for example, when driving, during pregnancy, or when taking certain medicines.

Q. I am interested in social service. So what can I do to promote a healthy pregnancy?

AHi friend, once you're pregnant, a regular checkup is the key. Your health professional might want to monitor your baby's growth and watch for problems that can only be detected by checking your blood pressure, urine, and blood regularly. Anything you do that harms your body harms your fetus. Take special care: To avoid: tobacco smoking, alcohol, drugs, chemicals, radiation (as from X-rays), and sources of infection. Keep your body temperature from getting too high [over 100.4° (38°)] by treating any fevers with acetaminophen (such as Tylenol) and avoiding exercise or activity that overheats you. Also avoid high-temperature hot tubs and saunas. Take extra-good care of yourself while you're pregnant. Everything healthy you do for your body benefits your growing fetus. Rest when you need it, eat well, and exercise regularly.
