Seneca County should consider going to a fully paid service. The times have shown that a all volunteer service here is over, people just dont have the time to volunteer as much as they used to, and the people who do it now are overwhlemed to the point of leaving. Most of the squad are streched to the max as far as manpower. We are paying for this service and what have we been getting recently, closed squads? The fact is you are willing to pay for one person and getting the other for free? That doesnt seem entirely fair to the volunteer who is doing the same thing and reciving nothing while the other is getting 10-15 dollars for it. A lot of the volunteer service have resorted into paying their EMT's during peak hours because of manpower shortages, why not pay everyone the same..it's only fair. If you cant raise the money just on billing, its time to bring it to the voters.
