Ambulance runs increase in 1996 The Nye County Emergency Medical Service in Pahrump, with 457 calls in the last quarter of 1996, just barely topped the previous high in 1995, according to Bill Pyzyna, EMS Coordinator. The total call volume in 1996 was 1683, compared to 1679 in 1995. "This was the first year that our call volume did not increase by 20 - 25%. "...I think that having the Pahrump Medical Center open 24 hours caused our total to remain level," Pyzyna said, EMS Coordinator. "Without the clinic, I believe our total would have topped 2000 calls."
