Ambulances usually meet benchmark, chief says

Response times to medical emergencies in Boylston mostly fall within the state benchmark of 10 minutes between the dispatch call and the arrival of the ambulance, according to Fire Chief Joseph Flanagan. However, Flanagan said that response times late at night are sometimes slightly over the standard, when on-call EMTs have to respond from home. “But it is very rarely that we don’t meet the 10-minute response mark, even during those times,” he added.
