The Ambulance falls under the managment of the Kansas Fire Protection District.

Holly Morgan is the Ambulance Coordinator.

It is an all Volunteer basic level service that has automatic back-ups in place.

You claim has a small problem. Our automatic back up is Charleston, not Oakland or Paris so not sure where you get your informatoin.

We have agreements with most surrounding agencies for assistance if needed for ALS intercepts.

"never anyone working everytime you need them"

Thats a pretty broad statement. There may have been a call where you personaly had to have Charleston respond but thats a far cry from claiming there is "never" anyone working when you need them. We resonded to roughly 40-50 calls this year. I believe there has only been 5-6 calls where Charleston had to take the call directly.

All the EMTs work from a pager system. If we are in town we are on call 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. The law requries 2 EMT's to go on a run. If we are short one person, Charleston is our back up that takes the call.

Depending on the type of call, Charleston is dispatched at the same time. Non life threatening calls they are paged 5 minutes after the Kansas page if we are not able to respond.

They are always looking for volunteers and schooling is paid for upon complettion of the course. Feel free to join the efforts of increasing the number of EMTs. As a volunteer service its a tough task to have enough people 24/7 and thats why we have automatic back ups with other agencies.

Your complaint would have merit if we were a full time staffed operation. We are not!

If you have ANY concers at all we urge you to bring those concerns to the next Fire Protection District meeting so they can be addressed in the proper format. Those meeting are the first Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at the Fire Station, 400 West Buena Vista, Kansas.
