I never said that trucks did not break down when Mike ran the ambulance service but trean star trucks also have broken down. And I guess it is a matter of opinion if the nurse is right because I think Mike done a hell of a lot better job than trans star. Trans star came in and made everyone promises that they could not keep. Trans Star also went to the fire chiefs meeting and told them they would not trade out supplies that the fire depts used because he was running a business not a charity. Makes me wonder if they are worried about the people of leslie county or money.

Thats a lie, i know for a fact when i worked there they gave the fire dept's long boards and alot of them too. im pretty sure when we were on car wrecks we would give them the stuff back they used, if im not mistaken. the only reason the fd didnt like tracy was because they were fond of the previous boss or they wanted the con themselves. i couldnt stand tracy when i worked there but now looking back on it i guess i was a little harsh in my opinion. when your not from a area and you act a little diffrent i guess people take you the wrong way. for that i am sorry for all the mean things i said about you, and i know what i got was what i had comming for a while. just because i had to learn life the hard way.
anyway give credit where it is due, hyden transtar has some of the best and i mean best medics in ky working for them. the emts are awsome,i would trust emts or the medics with my life or my kids. does tommy still work thare. he is a great medic. i wanted to do my ride time with him but they wouldnt let us go that far and do it. he has awsome techniques and als skills.
i remember a needle decompression once, thats one skill most medics shy from if the can, but tommy was quick and got the job done and saved the kid. i guess david is hurt pretty bad, he is a good guy too.
as far as the remark about them sending medics on transfers to make a profit, hrerrmmmm well i wont go in to the equasion of take runs pay-medics-fuel-supplys =roughly 1200, medical card paid 300.00 yahhh medic got paid for services, half the fuel bill got paid===you got free supplies!!

I am not putting down anyones skills that work at Trans Star. I agree they have some great medics and EMT's but so did Mike. He had some great people working for him. And yes the owner of Trans Star did go to the Fire Chiefs meeting and make that comment about running a business not a charity. Ask the fire chiefs that were there. And I understand that transfers have to be done in order the pay to operate the service but at some point you have to worry about the quality of the service the residents of the county are receiving instead of the profit margin. And I agree with your first opinion of Tracey he is an ass that has no business running an ambulance service. I see you did not comment about other services having to pick up some of Trans Stars runs.

sounds to me like you should have taken her in a car, that is if you waited that long for them to get her. if you had taken her in a car then you would have already been out of there. TAKE HER YOURSELF

I know what to do! Let's run off the ambulance service, shut down the hospital, fire all the school teachers, close the bank, lay off all law enforcement, impeach the mayor and the county judge and lock up the library. And while we're on a roll let's close the post office too so none of you can get your checks that all of the above WORK AND PAY TAXES to keep your sorry a$$es up. I am so sick and tired of you low rent, low lifed, low mentality deadbeat sponges COMPLAINING about every service that is offered in this county AND every person who performs a service in this county. If you are sooooooo dissatisfied with the way things are, get off your lazy rears and WORK to change it, or better yet, MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTY SO YOU CAN TRASH IT! I have yet to hear any of you trash the welfare office or the post office. That tells me that is your means of support. You know what they say about biting the hand that feeds you. What you had better think about is if the rest of us get sick and tired of keeping you and your sorry welfare butts up...we just might quit work and then YOUR check will be cut out! I am sick to death of idiots who find fault with every single thing that is done. There is so much negative energy on here that it's no wonder the internet keeps breaking down. Why don't you give it a rest!
Apparently you missed the posts about the Post Office and Welfare office.......In case you didn't know it, they are Equal Opportunity Bashers.....no one is off limits, even if it is the hand that is feeding them.

I work with a fire department and we have always gotten back the supplies we used. We only ask them to replace what we use. I have been upset when there was no medic to respond but that's not the fault of the people on duty and most of the people that work at TransStar are nothing but good at the job they do. I think they need to add employees but that's just my opinion. I too remember the others services and I think we are lucky to have the service we have now. I think the county would do well to take the service back,and try to keep most of the employees that work there now. I know that TransStar has the equipment and that it costs a great deal to get started in business but TransStar has to be making money or I don't think they would want to stay in our county. But for the time being, I think TransStar does a good job.

Sit back and think about this,if TranStar did not have to go out on all the useless runs that they have to do where someone has hurt their big toe and called for an ambulance just so they can try to get a pain pill, think about how much of their time that takes up.then if some sick person realy needs an ambulance they have to wait untill they take big toe to the hospital and then clean their truck before they can roll on anything else.
I know the owner

I know the owner and if this is going on has anybody contacted him about this problem. He is a good guy im sure if you will contact him he will fix the problems if there is any. I do know when the county was in great need thay contacted him the last min he went and took care of the county. When tsa got the service everything was broke. Thay have come up leaps and bounds. Mike osborne is a good guy could only do what he could. so instead of bashing transtar why dont everybody be a support and help and not run down the EMS System in Eastern Ky. This is so stupid what people is try to do, or maybe just one just ask mike osborne he knows how much it funds it take to run a service. So come guys be a help!

I don't know much about who runs the ambulance service here in Hyden. I was involved in a single vehicle accident on August 7th, 2008, I was the only one in my vehicle. Two ambulances were dispatched, luckily I was not injured enough to need them, several people were like you should have went with them, I didn't see the need of them having to take me anywhere and dirty up the ambulance for no reason, that could have meant life or death for someone who really needed to go to the hospital. They arrived in a timely manner in my opinion, and you won't hear me badmouthing them.

If they pick you up in the parking lot at the hospital and drive you up to the ER it will be almost the same as a trip to lexington. Thats the way it is not just for Transtar but every other EMS system. Everybody wants stuff for free and its just not going to happen. If you needed a cab ride from the high school to the hospital then call LKLP. If you needed a liscensed paramedic call 911, but you will pay for it. Its as simple as that.
Ignorance is bliss they say.
