Re: “Double EMS

I am proud to say that I am a Boise Firefighter, unfortunately "boise city tax payer" is not proud to claim their status as a Ada County Paramedic. This underlies the great difficulty of a reasonable public discussion re: an efficient, effective EMS system for all of Ada County. Misinformation, distorting the facts, figures, and statistics about our EMS system have occurred for my twenty years and continues today.

It is sad, given what is at stake (responding to someone's emergency), that there has been so little leadership from Ada County to consistently be looking for improvements to both the quality of care and providing the most efficient service for the "real tax payer".

Our dirty little secret (from public view) which continues to plague the EMS system is that Ada County EMS is much more busy protecting their "turf" than developing a cooperative relationship with all of the agencies providing EMS within Ada County.

We (I am a Boise tax payer also) all pay for one of the most expensive ambulance services in the Western States. Please remember to include all of Ada County EMS funding sources when evaluating the "costs" of providing the service.
