Sec. 5-6.1. Same—Unnecessary calls.
Any person who without just cause therefor calls or summons, by telephone or otherwise, any ambulance shall pay the city a response and evaluation fee in the amount of one-half of the basic ambulance transport fee in order to reimburse the city for the expenses incurred by the city in responding to such summons. For the purposes of this section a person shall be deemed to have summonsed an ambulance without just cause if the person summonsing ambulance transportation has made two (2) or more unfounded requests for assistance within the calendar year preceding the summons. Such fees shall be imposed on the third and all subsequent summonses. Whenever a person summonses an ambulance under circumstances where there was no reasonable basis for requesting ambulance transportation, the fee set forth shall be imposed for each request for an ambulance. (Ord. No. O-84-218, § 1, 9-11-84)
