thye should just make a county wide paramedic and EMT division such as they already have the K9 unit, CIU, etc. have the sheriff's dept run it. In our taxes or not, you know we're paying for it and at least if it's run by the County there's more transparency and accountability (as opposed to 15 different emergency service companies that don't answer to ANYONE)

Gene- it's obvious you don't volunteer any time to these services, you really should get your facts together before you spew misinformation, I have been a part of both volunteer organizations, we do answer ANYONE, we have to account for our spending and do report income and expenditures, without volunteering you couldn't afford to live here with the amount if calls that are handled, and as far as quality medical, they have never asked a resident to pay a penny that insurance doesn't cover, Do t sit back reading an article about a person that was intoxicated and caused damage and possible further injury to others and turn it into a emergency services bashing. Try volunteering it will be time better used.

Way to go Whiting Boy too!!! Our 100% volunteer first aid squad goes to ALL calls that they can, but since they don't have enough good hearted people willing to VOLUNTEER their time to neighbors they don't even know, Quality has offered their services as a back up and will only accept $$ from the insurance company... never charging a resident, the first aid squad or the township.... Gene, try to get that from an all paid, township/county run squad. PS - When was the last time you needed non-volunteer prearranged ambulance services? If you have insurance they choose the company and if you don't and you're in a hospital and need transport to a specialty hospital, the company is chosen by the hospitals... all based on location, need & insurance (if applicable). So technically they can 'advertise' all they want to the public, but its a waste...

you mean all those multi-color flashing lights are not for grabbing my attention while i drive down the road just so i can read the name on the side of the van? i guess they do that so when your pinned in your car and unconscious after a dumb drunk slams into you while you are out driving home from wall mart you can have something to complain about when/if you wake up, that some volunteer squad or a company you didn't have in mind gives you a ride to the "body shop". right?

Some tribes in Sudan and Senegal http://www.coachoutletonlinexc.net/ Coach Factory Outlet have an average height of 6-foot-6, which also happens to be the size of the average NBA player. People in Nigeria, http://www.louisvuittonoutletam.net/ Louis Vuitton Purses Mali and Congo tend to be very big and physical. We need to build a strategy to go into these regions http://www.coachoutletstoreze.com/ Coach Factory Outlet and cultivate the talent through infrastructure and instruction.Not long ago, soccer in Africa was almost http://www.guccibeltsoutletds.net/ Gucci Belts the same way. It was untapped.Kids in Africa start kicking a ball when they are six or seven years old, if not younger. http://www.coachfactoryonlinefn.net/ Coach Factory Outlet It's like baseball, basketball and football in America. If you're talented, people will find you. That's what http://www.coachfactoryonlineae.com/ Coach Factory Outlet happened with soccer.
