Learning More About the Industry
As part of your due diligence on opening an emergency ambulance service, it's essential that you learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started an emergency ambulance service on the other side of the country can be a great learning resource for you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Pros & Cons of Buying an Emergency Ambulance Service
Although there are significant benefits to buying an emergency ambulance service (rather than launching a startup), it's important to weigh the pros and cons before you commit to a purchase scenario.
PROs: Acquired emergency ambulance services should be profitable right out of the gate; they should also be capable of demonstrating a loyal customer base, brand identity and operational efficiencies.
CONs: On the downside, emergency ambulance service acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy so it's important to make sure the business is capable of achieving your ownership goals before you initiate the buying process.
