Each licensed ambulance service shall immediately respond to any emergency call for an ambulance directed to that ambulance service by the 911 Dispatch Center. If the licensed  ambulance service is not able to immediately respond to the emergency or is not able to  respond with an appropriate or requested level of service, the licensed ambulance service  shall immediately report this situation to the 911 Dispatch Center and shall follow the directions of that agency regarding the response. A licensed ambulance service shall be allowed no more than ten (10) occurrences per month of failing to respond to a call where the call is turned over to the other licensed ambulance service. Every occurrence after the tenth (10th) occurrence in any month shall be considered a violation of this chapter.
