"The city's top health official yesterday urged a city council committee seeking private ambulance reforms to make the Chicago fire department the clearing house for all ambulance calls. Dr. Murray C. Brown, city health commissioner, proposed a special city-wide ambulance telephone number with fire department personnel answering phones. A caller would be told a fire department ambulance would respond to an emergency call, if he wished, or he could call a private ambulance service. Telephone numbers for private ambulance service would be made available to ta caller. . ."
