Eight paramedics and first responders with Lane LifeTrans are waiting to find out if the patients they responded to earlier this month will test positive for the coronavirus. The first responders were on calls where patients showed symptoms that could be linked to the virus that's now shutdown many businesses and operations across the valley and state. "It's scary for all of us because we still don't know where we are with this, hence our concerns and reason for conservation of the equipment that we have," Joe Lane said, president and CEO of The Lane Companies. Lane says he doesn't know how long they'll have enough personal protective gear for his staff. Right now, he has about 60 paramedics still working on calls.
