INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Too Big An Ask?

 

For the past several years, the problems of O‘ahu’s Emergency Medical Services have been widely reported: EMT sick-outs due to 14 and 16 hour days with no relief in sight; and an aging fleet of ambulances needing constant repair. Each day, there are more than a million residents, visitors and military personnel on O‘ahu. EMS has only 20 ambulance units available at any given time. Is that enough? We’ll hear from the head of O‘ahu’s EMS, a doctor who works in Hawai‘i’s busiest ER, and others.

But veterans say more needs to be done to ease the transition back into civilian life. What help is available for veterans who are trying to access health care, pensions, housing, and other government benefits and services? Where can they find support as they re-enter the job market?
