Wall Street is buying 911 emergency services and giving homes color-coded threat ratings

MassPrivateI

A NY Times article reveals private equity firms (corporate raiders) have been buying 911 services across the country!

Since the 2008 mortgage crisis, private equity firms have increasingly taken over a wide array of emergency services like 911. They also own two of the biggest ambulance companies in the country, according to the article they own 10 more ambulance companies.  

States like KY, NC,  DC, MOCA, FL,  KS, IL, IA and UT have or are considering privatizing their ambulances services.

Wall Street’s movement into emergency services is terrifying.

Law professor Michelle Anderson warns, “We’re reaching new lows in public safety services… private equity firms are not philanthropists.”

Private equity firms like Warburg Pincus, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Company, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CDR), Onex, and Harbour Point Capital (HBC) actually own 911 emergency services. HBC’s website claims they’re “Helping Build Great Healthcare Companies”.

“These are very sophisticated investors, and they’re not just looking for ways to get bigger,” says David White, CEO of New York-based TransCare, the largest privately owned ambulance service in the mid-Atlantic states. “They’re looking for ways to create more value when they put everything together he said.

Wall Street firms also own, healthcare groups and anesthesiology companies.

EMSC owned the American Medical Response, Inc. (AMR), a healthcare transportation services segment, EmCare Holdings, Inc. (EmCare), an outsourced physician services company and Evolution Health, LLC, a post-acute care services provider.

In 2013, EMSC acquired Guardian Healthcare Group, Inc., a post-acute care provider of skilled nursing and therapy services and two anesthesiology companies, Saint Vincent Anesthesia Medical Group, Inc., and Golden State Anesthesia Consultants, Inc.

Wall Street and DHS run America’s 911 services

Companies like Intrado Communications which is run by two former deputies are in charge of our country’s 911 services.

Intrado Communications (think Wall St.) assigns every home a threat rating.

“… Smart911 is a national system that provides citizens with the ability to create safety profilesonline holding personal data that is automatically displayed to 9-1-1 only during emergency calls. Information can include children’s photos, medical conditions, disabilities, home addresses of cellphone callers, or other rescue-related information…”

Fyi, DHS is behind Smart911 click here, here, & here to read more.

Wall Street is giving our homes color-coded threat assessments

Our homes are being given a color-coded threat assessment based on pizza delivery phone calls, your friends and much more.

Any high-priority 911 calls, defined as in-progress or life-threatening crimes, will now be filtered through a database to assess any possible threats an officer may encounter while responding.

“The database goes through all public information for the call’s location — from arrest records to pizza deliveries — and gives the address a rating. Green means minimal threat, yellow a possible threat and red a major threat.”

Alarm bells should be going off across the country.  Why are private equity firms allowed to run 911 emergency services? As the mass-media fawns over the Olympics, Wall St., and DHS are selling us out. 

Numerous private equity firms are owned by foreign investors, which means foreigners are giving American homes threat ratings!

Wall Street admits to collaborating with DHS

We invest in companies that deliver value to the healthcare system… we collaborate with operators to define long term strategic objectives and help execute against those strategies by identifying add-on acquisition opportunities…

If you substitute DHS for “operators” you’ll understand how truly disturbing this is. Wall St., is working with DHS to privatize emergency services.

11 million Americans are working to buy every public service

 “There’s a lot of discussion about private-equity investing in risk-based models and I do think we’ll see more of that” Slava Girzhel, managing director at KeyBanc Capital Markets said.

Over 11 million Americans work for private-equity-backed businesses, and millions more rely on private equity performance for their retirement security,” James Maloney, a spokesman for the American Investment Council said.

If you thought the financial crisis of 2007-2009 was bad, just wait until Wall St., and DHS privatize every public service.

  1. Gee and I thought it was just operations that fly serious cases in rural areas to big city hospitals, that is, air transport. I suspect municipalities going bankrupt has a lot to do with it. Pretty soon this country will become the “United States of 3PL”!

  2. “Oh, your credit rating is poor, the Ambulance will arrive when we get there.” “Joey, let’s crack another pork chop.” (beer) Don’t make me laugh. I know exactly what goes on at firehouse meetings, you guys got a drunk Ambulance driving ticket not too long ago! So save your sanctimonious bullshit for the “Walking while Stupid” folk and I’ll leave you alone. Actually, I won’t ever leave you alone, I’ll be on your $hit like a blue fly.

  3. “Since the 2008 mortgage crisis, private equity firms have increasingly taken over a wide array of emergency services like 911.”

    Then they should be providing their OWN private pigs to murder the callers, not depending on state & local pigs… at taxpayer expense.

    “… giving homes color-coded threat ratings”

    Color coding the fags is easy… rainbow.
