Re: “Double EMS

I apologize. I was misinformed about your BLS prices. Even still....$900.00!!!!! Compare that to CCP, Parma or Kuna. You'll find that ALS transports are roughly TWICE as costly when provided by your service. Why is that? No really.... I would like to know. Better service? Better supplies? Faster ambulance? Answer this. Why is it that every time a fire medic position opens in this valley the majority of the applicants are currently working for ACP?(you know who you are)

Re: “Double EMS

Fact: ACP's minimum transport fee $925.00. Without ANY interventions. Just a cab ride from ADA $925.00. Let me remind you... This should not be a business but a SERVICE!

Re: “Double EMS

Weird how they provide both services huh? I am well aware of the Fire T's. Was mearly pointing out the fact that medics had them too. All this caring about people and no fundraising calendar/events? Why not have an ACP calendar to raise money for those that can't pay? Whats the minimum price for your transport? Embarrassed to say? You should be. Make all the budget wars you want. Fact is when something burns down we don't send the vicuims a bill. We provide shelter, food, clothes and transportation with money earned from fundraisers. Other private agencies can provid your quality of care for about half of what ADA charges. Shame on you ACP for taking advantage.

Re: “Double EMS

Proof that paragods have their "beef cake calendars" and stupid T-shirts too. Just a couple of examples of MANY. Lets not forget that those "beef cake calendars" are FUNDRAISERS.

Re: “Double EMS

Wow..... I’m speechless. My small, inadequate, macho, homo-phobic, beer soaked fire medic brain is at a loss for words. Oh... Wait...... nope. Here it comes..... So I guess that “Star of Life” on your shirt is just like a letterman jacket too? People ARE far more important than things. Ever wondered why firefighters are concerned with “pulling hose” or “making cuts here and there” on the scene of an MVA? It’s not because they have “gadgets” that they can’t live without using, or because we don’t care about the pt. It’s to expedite the mitigation of the emergency at hand and to ensure scene safety. Period. They have enough going there heads on scene without having to argue with you. So if you really want to help a pt in a hazardous atmosphere just let the professionals that are trained in these types of things secure the scene. You don’t bum rush cops and tell them what to do?..... Or do you? As far as the threat thing?????? I never made a threat. I was simply saying that trash talking can come back to bite you during your interview for that BFD medic position after ACP loses it’s contract. Oh???? What’s that???? You never talk trash?????? Just facts right?????
“we dont pound our chest and wear "I'm a fire fighter so spread your legs for me" shirts ever where. And its true we are not as macho and don’t have beef cake calendars”
“That makes us stronger, better, than the mono-colored, mono-sexed macho, homo-phobic FEAR MONGERING FD.”
“One of the letter writers (a fireman) wanted to make the point that the fire department deals with hazards. Thankfully, he omitted adding hero to every sentence.”

Re: “Double EMS

I'm proud to be a firefighter/paramedic. I speak for many fire/medics when I say I did not become a medic to get hired as a firefighter. My choice of dept. reflects my love for both fire and EMS (yes.... we transport!)Regardless of who is in charge one thing remains VERY clear.... PT care is numero uno. Can we be hard headed? Of course. Do we cherish tradition? Yes. As for not being in the "top ten deadliest jobs" we train very hard daily to avoid becoming part of those stats. Is there a place for women in the FD? Absolutely. As long as they pass all of the required tests just like everybody else has. Those of you who so carelessly run your mouth might want to start watching what you say. There is a very good possibility that you'll be wearing the Maltese cross on your shirt one day.
