I have been thinking for a long time about this and would like so input from those in the community. I am thinking about organizing A Volunteer Service for the county. The way it will work is we will run Ems calls and assist the ambulance in the county for life threatening call such as difficulty breathing, heart attack, unconscious and unresponsive patients and so on. we would not be responding to car accidents because there is enough help on them already and that would just put us in the way. First I would like to find people that are RNs, LPNs, Paramedics, EMTs,other EMR trained people in the community. I will also open it up to people that are not Licensed individuals and will have training available for them. I feel this is a very important thing and could help the community greatly. In some county's the Fire Depts take care of this. In others they have there own first responders just like im proposing. I know in the very rural area where it takes the Ambulance awhile to get there as in Marquand,Saco, Jewett, and other areas where it takes awhile. Give me your input and I will keep you informed on my end on what I have found out as I talk to the county officials. Thanks

I think it's a very good ideal and would be interested in helping any way I can.
It's also nice to see topix used for something useful for a change.

Why don't the fire departments do this?

I have mentioned this for many years if you go to st fran county all those fire departments run ems calls and provide top notch service . state law only requires fire departments to respond to fires and wrecks. its the chief and or department board that decides on ems response. its high time the safety of citizens is put first.

There are a lot of factors that go into implementing first responder protocols for a fire department. The city council or fire department board of directors has to approve it. Then lengthy detailed protocols have to be written and adopted by the fire department. Next all members of the fire department will have to undergo at minimum first responder training if they are not already trained. The fire department will also have to amend their insurance to cover first responders on medical calls which will most likely end up costing much more, which brings me to my next point. Running first responder calls would also require a larger budget for the fire department personnel to keep up their certifications, pay for medical supplies, and pay for the maintenance and fuel every time the truck rolls out the door. Also our three fire departments in this county consist of about twenty to twenty five volunteers per department who mostly work daytime jobs. It would be a huge burden put on their employers by allowing the volunteer firefighters to leave on that amount of calls. Madison County Ambulance District runs around 1400 to 1600 calls a year. I know the fire departments wouldn't actually run on that many calls but a good portion of them they would. With that said I do believe having a first responder program is a great idea but I just wanted to make some of you aware of what a first responder program would entail. I do hope whoever started this discussion does continue to pursue implementing a first responder program in this county. It would be a very valuable asset to the citizens.

I Know that there is a lot of reason that are local depts dont run ems calls. Number one is that the number of calls that the ambulance has and the number of calls the fire calls that the people on the depts wouldnt have time to work and thats a major issue. Now Im opening this up to the firefighters in the community as well. if they are EMR or higher trained. I would like to find people from all over the county. not just the city of Fredericktown. The reason is as the ambulance now calls the fire depts when they need help I just want to have it where they have the help. Now the fire dept will respond to land helicopters, And as first responders we will not be running motor vehicle accidents just due to the hazards being in the road and ambulance personnel will have help on a scene. I want to have us set up with radios and be pages just like the fire depts My major concern is the money to buy supplies and equipment. I would like to issue each responder with a jump bag and keep them stocked up in supplies. The ambulance district may be able to assist with some as St Francois co ambulance did. I know we will need a medical director and protocols. Im going to talk to the ambulance personal and ambulance board to see what if anything they can assist us. we maybe be able to use their medical director and be placed with there malpractice insurance we will have to see because that will be very costly and trying to get up and going to be costly as we know already.

First of all the ambulance crew that you have in Madison County is a joke besides Dan and Michelle, they are the only two who are worth a shit. The rest of them are either fat and lazy or too stupid to know how to find an address. They need to clean house and hire a crew that is trustworthy and has brains. You have had jokes as emt in the past such as Kevin Jones, Kathy Bullock, and Jeremy Stetina. If something major happens in our county we would be in for a world of hurt. Hire some people with intelligence and training not a bunch of rejects like we currently have. And who is the blond haired boy that wears an ems uniform and carries a gun in his side? I think his last name is Brown, is that necessary? What's he going to do, shoot an unarmed victim that is in need of help, what a joke Madison county.

Oh James! You think you are so cute and funny.... My guess is that you are someone who doesn't like one of those EMT's or maybe your just jealous. Maybe you suck at your job, or might not have any teeth. Who knows? Maybe you would man up and use a real name and just maybe meet up sometimes. I don't want to make any threats but I would love to meet you in person. I don't know them EMT's very well, but as a first responder they have my respect. So lets meet up and discuss this.

James you don't have the slightest clue what you are talking about. Our ambulance district provides a very high quality of care and employs a very hard working and talented staff. You have chosen to talk about two of my good friends in your last post and I don't appreciate it, and I know they wouldn't either. Jeremy Statina hasn't been with the district since it operated under the hospital. Kevin Jones is an excellent EMT and is currently enrolled in the paramedic program at Mineral Area College and is doing very well. Daytona Brown is also an outstanding EMT and currently works for St. Francois County Ambulance District. He too is currently enrolled in the paramedic program at Mineral Area College and is doing very well. Kevin and Daytona are two of my best friends and I would vouch for either one of them in or outside the workplace.

How do you know that those EMT's arnt good at their job? Do you work with them? And I don't think that people on the ambulance can carry guns while working, but if he is off, why shouldn't he carry?

And if you want to talk about a dysfunctional department, look at the Sheriffs Departement.
At least they have a good Sheriff now, but geeze, most of the deputies are a joke. There are a few that are good deputies, like Katy McCutchen, Deane Danbeck, Lee Chambers, but the majority are ignorant!

Luke Nickleson.... There isnt anything to say... He is textbook! " Im going to be a cop because I cant do anything else!!! And becuase I cant follow the laws myself" and Steve has followed right in his footsteps!

I would rather see a ambulance person with a gun than Luke! As much BS as he causes, im surprised he has a job anymore! Hopefully with the new Sheriff, that will change!

Ok Samual if that's your real name, you are threatening me and if you would like to meet up with me buddy we can do that. Your meager threats do not scare me in the least. I have seen the unprofessionalism of these emt's in question. My name is no concern of yours, lets just say ive worked with you as a fellow emt and I am a citizen of this county and I have the right to my opinion on this forum without being threatened. But if that's what you would like to do then have at it, you name the time and place and we can "meet" to discuss the issue at hand. And as for my comments about the ambulance crew in the past that too is my opinion and I am entitled to it. If you call having sex at the ambulance shed professional then you are gravely wrong, and that is what mr jones along with mrs bullock have done in the past, I'm not saying with each other but with other people. It is a well known fact among the ambulance community that mrs. Bullock was having an affair with Tony the director. Also Mr. Jones has has numerous girls at the ambulance headquarters and has had sex with then while on duty spreading his herpes , betcha didn't know that did you? And as for Stetina, he's a fat lazy pos that I have worked with and watch him let people die. And the kid carrying a gun is a laugh, if you have a concealed carry then keep the gun concealed don't flaunt it like a kid with a new toy, so grow up mr brown. This is my opinion and I will continue to post as I wish, freedom of speech is something that cannot and will not be stopped. I vote for a new crew in this county, maybe I will come back to work there if the trash is taken out.

EMS in fredericktown is a financial resource gathering and redistribution organization for a disfunctional hospital. We would best shutdown medical services in Madison county because they always send pts to st.l or farmington.

I don't believe Samual threatened you in anyway. Here are his exact words. "I don't want to make any threats but I would love to meet you in person". It sounds like Samual wants to talk not make threats. Don't twist people's words around to use to your advantage.

Madison County EMS is no longer affiliated with the hospital. They are an independent and self supporting entity of the Madison County tax payers. The ambulance district hasn't been associated with the hospital in nearly five years. This shows how much you really now about the ambulance district.
