Would have to agree that he does seem to have a bit of an attitude when talking and dealing with people. Seems to think that he is much better than those he deals with.

As for being director.........not too many out there that would have ever wanted it. But, I have never understood why he needs a county owned vehicle. If he is only an EMT and not a medic....it is a bit of a waste.

Is it county owned or county plated perhaps? The squad is a private entity I do believe. I'm also not sure why it matters, as far as being a director goes, what his medical training is? Most ems people in the state are EMTs.

I do believe he does a great job. Sounds like a group of jealous people again trying to slander people!

Rick has a history of being a medic-wannabe. A director should definitely have more medical education than an EMT-Basic. Nothing at all against EMT-Basics, but, EMT-Paramedics have extremely more medical education and are trained to provide IV's, needed drugs, and Advance Life Support to patients in the field. EMS could not manage without EMT-Basics - they are first responders in most emergencies and they do their job well. They should not be in a position to critique Medics, who, same as EMT-Basics have protocols to follow, but are more advanced.

Well it sounds like if they have to follow protocols, it would be easy (as an EMT-B director) to see whether or not a protocol had been followed in the field. There seem, to me, to be a distinction between having a higher level of care (to provide) or to direct an emergency scene... the odds of Rick doing patient care sound pretty slim anyways, unless all crews are busys.

There are some counties that the director is not even an EMT. Director is more on the business side anyways or should be. That is why there should be an ALS and a BLS Coordinator under the director to handle the EMT's and Medics.

Sooooo, what real good does it do Rick and his little mini-me, Robbie (both EMT's) to run up and down the roads in their nifty little vehicles? What are they going to do once they get there? Put a band aid on you? Cracks me up. Rick does have an attitude problem, he thinks he is better than anyone else.

The vehicles are squad owned but county tagged.
what a screw ball

That goes to show how stupid people can be if Becky wasn't at that squad there wouldn't be a squad, her years of dedication and getting money in for the squad is the reason they still operate to this day! So who ever you are that wants to bash her there is plenty of people who will defend her so you had better keep her out of it, she has always done an amazing job for this community and has always put the squad first know matter what, so get your facts straight before you go bashing someone for know reason!!

I will leave my opinions of Rick at a minimum; however, I will say, he leaves a lot to be desired. Rick loves his power trip...treating people as if they are less of a person than he is...and, he certainly thrives on having things his way. The man could not tell the truth if his life depended on it, especially if he is in a tight spot himself. Fortunately, the majority of his cronies are no long there because some people did eventually see the light. He criticizes and makes fun of people as if he is the cream of the crop. UCEMS was once an admirable place to work, where people had a good time, were family like, and worked hard for our county. Now, he can't keep employees to even find their way around the community when people are in need. To me, this is embarassing and unfortunate for those who have resided here all their lives that are in true need for medical attention. Sadly, no one else wants to devote every waking second of every day to an establishment as he does. But, of course, the reason he does is because he certainly wouldn't want any one else having an ounce of control. Over the years, UCEMS has lost many good people and they continue to dwindle away. As for Becky, well...I find this pathetic. Becky held that establishment together by being everyones leaning post for years. Finally, or so I'm guessing, she had enough too and was smart to take herself out of the pit that continues to deepen on Pocahontas Street. Becky is a good person who was and has always been friendly and kind to everyone and can not believe that she is being thrown in the same direction as the arrogant director is.Rick will create his own demise again and before too long I'm sure. He will get run out of town before it is all said and done. Everyone knows how he is -
It should tell a man something when his own family wants nothing to do with him, but then again, why would they want to? I am not a mean person but when you treat others the way he does, you can't help but feel a little recourse in his direction. Always remember, what goes around, comes around!

I wouldn't care what his rank is, should the need arise that that I was in need of medical attention. I am sure you people wouldn't either. I don't know him at all, but he has to care about people to be in the profession he is in. Would you be glad to see him at the scene of an accident that you or your family was in and needed medical attention....Thought so.
