There have been several concerns about how our ambulance service is operated, and I myself have never really butted into their business up until now. My husband is a dedicated firefighter in this great community. When this community has an emergency of any sort, the fire department is always there to do their job. That is the way emergency services are recognized.

We as citizens have to pay a fee for emergency services whether we want to or not, so they should be available when needed. If our ambulance service is off in other towns doing transfers, how is that helping? If someone has a heart attack and our ambulance is in Ann Arbor or wherever, we have to wait until someone from another town comes to our rescue with their A.L.S. unit. They do have backup help, but they are not always available.

The point here is why are we paying for an ambulance service that is not always available? Back a few years ago, the emergency services were a whole, what happened to the good old days?

There are concerned citizens who worry about the importance of the emergency services that are not always available to them.
