apparently some idiotic Camptom residents woudl rather NOT have an ambulance service, because that was the alternative before the new owners took over! The previous owners had RAN it INTO the GROUND! Seems to be a few digruntled former workers out there who were let go due to their inability to perform!
Get over it and find a new job elsewhere

Wonder if they'd let me drive an ambulance? Do you have to have your CDLs?

"well". That is very childish with your yelling and name calling, maturity some times hurts but we all have to grow up sometime.

Are the citizens of Wolfe County aware that an ambulance that was paid with their tax dollars and owned by the Wolfe County Fiscal Court is transporting Breathitt citizens? It's not running in Wolfe County, Unit 608.

those ambulance was purchased thru grants that the service applied for, those grants had to have the judges signature for the service to receive the grants, then a large ample amount went with those grants that came from the Ambulance services fund to finish purchasing the truck. Grant money alone doesn't come from Wolf County working people. But that very truck is transporting transfers of other counties via Trans Star ArrowMed.

No matter what some of the hypocrites on this forum say about the former Wolfe county ambulance, some of them took a lot of pride in their work! In their hearts they know that with all knowledge that has been acquire thru many years of serving the public that they have provided the best healthcare to their patients. There isn't any better feeling that comes down deep when and elderly patient tells you that they love you, and the next time they see you they ask about you, how you and your family is doing. Or that they hope that the next time they go out that you are who comes and gets them.

You are right there were a lot of good former employees. I know of several that helped me in my time of need years and years ago. Plus some that helped a couple of years ago. Those are the ones that I hope the new service has employed if not, then shame on those new owners.
As far as the comment about firing someone for posting on facebook. Unless it actually broke some laws I don't think they could. But if you posted something negative about the ambulance service or something, then I am sure they found a way to fire you and should have. If you are not happy with your job, then either quit or grin and bear it like a lot of others.

Theres no problem at all with most of the employees. The problem lies with the moron owner, j arrowood. He has no idea how to run an ambulance service and if something isnt done about him then unfortunately a helpless citizen who needed help will prob die because the owner does not listen to employees when they say they need certain stuff for their ambulances. He wants his EMTs and paramedics to leave a county with no emergency ambulance available to go to a drs run which you legally cant do. all he cares about is money. Its sad to see someone own an ambulance service like that. He doesnt care about the citizens well being at all and when the good employees refuse to take the last unit out on a non emeergency run he wants to fire them or when they request things to be stocked on there truck he wants to fire them. Hes sorry! And no im not a disgruntled employee, i know people that work for him and its all facts. I feel bad for the people of breathitt and wolfe counties.There are some great employess though that dont deserve to be treated the the way they are by the present owner.

There are certain things that an ambulance is required to carry. If they get a surprise inspection and they don't have it then they will get wrote up for it. If people don't like what they are doing then call and report them to KBEMS. You can check their website to see if they have been wrote up for anything

<quoted text> not no big shock there, it's been said that the truck haven't any stock, they probably didn't have a c collar! Sorry for inadequate treatment they got.
This is true and its all the owners fault. Good employees try to tell him but he wont listen. He just wants to make a buck.

Because the older ones do not want to loose their license or get sued for not going by the law that governs them, He tells them that they will do as he says not what the law says

As an "older" one that left, I'll tell you why they left and/or got fired - they refuse to violate protocol that arrowood wants them to break just to make an extra dime. He's replaced most of the older folks with young'uns fresh out of EMT school that don't know any better than to do his bidding. It ain't gonna end pretty for jay.

I used to work there and am so glad I don't anymore! How can the state allow someone who knows nothing about EMS run an ambulance service. Those of us in EMS had to go to school around two yrs take national and state boards but an owner need NO training that is so stupid. Hope Jackson Fire Dept gets the city!!! They will care for the people of this county! And not kill their workers on stupid Dr. Apointments. Hauling dialysis pts who walk and get around better than I do! Tax payers are footing the bill for!
