I've been in an ambulance when they had to pull over so we could get an IV started. If the road is bad, you feel like you're in driving over a log road in the back of ambulances. The percentage of people who arrest at home, that make it is not all that high. My Dad went into V fib, my Mom is a retired ICU nurse, who started CPR immediately, and the ambulance was there in 3 min and they did everything, including shock. They never got Dad around at all.
