not so much usually they are all members of marion life saving crew and they let 6 min go by for 3 tones so they can race up there and get paid for the call LC is notorious for this, so I guess having a full code still isnt important enough to them not to make them wait long enough to possibly get brain damage anybody who to EMT basic will know that is enough time to cause brain damage and then lets not count in how long it takes them to get there to the patient. So im thinking when is something going to be done about this?????????? I can only guess when somebody important in this town get hurt or killed not just poor ole granny, And if you want proof all ya have to do is listen to the scanner for 1 nite and it would make you sick.

You're a joke as well, they all work at Marion Life Saving Crew?? I beg to differ. The only one that worked there was Bobby Combs that I'm aware of and if they are more OH WELL!! I do know these people and the workers and I can tell you they don't go stand around just to claim there money, that's all you have to do when you are on call is stand and wait, if you don't have a second job which all of them do that I know of. A lot of days you can ride by there and see 0 vehicles sitting there, therefor for someone that lives in sugar grove it's going to take them a lil bit to get to the building, not everyone is wreckless when a call comes in and drives mock 90 down the road to just be the first one there like Adwolfe responders do!! AND for your information I've noticed that Richardson seems to get around and to people a lot quicker then what Marion does “BEEN THERE HAD IT HAPPEN” So stop running off at the mouth and become a EMT since you think you can do soooo much better at it, and see how demanding it is. IF you don't like the business then don't bother putting your worthless two cents into the matter cause no one really cares to hear about it!! Quite frankly I'm glad they are kicking A** and taking names with them, and for the biggest reason I am glad they are doing good is too piss people like you off even more that your worthless words didn't and aren't gonna put them outta business.... Way to go guys keep up the great work and keep on bursting these pathetic individuals bubbles of useless hopes of Smyth county just having MLSC in it again.

Glad "urajoke" likes Richardsons so much. Nearly 90% of their employees are MLSC "volunteers", and yes, it sure seems strange that these "dedicated volunteers" can't make MLSC calls but are always available to take rollover calls. If they're that dedicated, why not go when you hear the scanner call for second alert instead of waiting until you get paid? Keep this up and MLSC won't be here.

Ura joke must b working for richardsons then and yes I know of several employees of that are members of MLSC and let talk about last night when oppps nobody answered for MLSC tones for a code but all of a sudden richardsons was going to the scene to save the day all you have to so is open your ears and the evidence is right there,and personally I think that something needs to be done patient care should be first, and who care if your getting paid that not what it suppose to be about,and in a study MLSC also has the slowest reponse time in this area 15-45 min after day shift leaves to respond. I think both places need to be looked into and this stopped you are risking peoples lives!!!!!!!

Richardson has grown and been able to thrive because of the absolute pathetic way that MLSC has been run. Richardson was able to step in also when SCAS fell out if good graces with SCCH and Abingdon Ambulance renigged on their promise to dedicate a truck to SCCH only.

MLSC does the best they can with what they have...but let's just be honest. MLSC really has nothing left to work with. They are run by backwoods country boys and have only 2 decent ALS providers who run on the same truck everyday. That alone is just stupid. Aren't they good enough to run in trucks with a basic EMT? Why tie up 2 Medics with one truck? Hard to say.

Abingdon Ambulance is closing their office soon. Their lease runs out in Nov and they have already cut back to a minimal staff...and leave that office unattended on most days. The decent EMT's and Medics they once staffed there have taken other jobs, transferred to other locations, or quit altogether. Abingdon Ambulance needs to stay in Abingdon where they have the connections to maintain a business base.

SCAS will continue to slowly lose business since the old man died. The children just have a clue what it takes.

Trinity is all but extinct already and you can pretty much expect them to follow in the footsteps of dear old dad and Saltville Rescue soon, in my opinion.

Richardson will continue to thrive. They started with other companies rejects...that's true....but they have quickly become the best agency in the area. They have stayed true to their word. They offer great service to the hospital and the community and Mark and Kelly are well liked.

All of the services mentioned here have exceptional employees on one or two trucks.....its too bad that the best of the best cant all work for one agency....that would sure help.

Thank you,at least someone else knows the truth. For all the rest of you, you think what you want to think but I can promise you assumptions will get you nowhere in life. Just because I know the owners and their family and their employees doesn't obligate me to be part of their "awesome" team.

No one mentioned Chilhowie Ambulance Service. They have an ambulance on Radio Hill Rd in Marion staffed with an advanced life support crew 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They have been in town a couple of years now and do a great job!

"Hello" what is the purpose of replying to mine, DUH does mine say anything about CAS?? No, I think you meant to reply to the person I replied too, try paying a little more attention to detail next time there sweetheart. What's great about 1000 calls, WELL at least they have achieved something, yeah it might be a year since they opened their doors, but when you are building a business up it takes longer then a year to do so. Let them be, they are doing great so far and hopefully will keep it up for years to come.

Then they should be a little more honest with how they go about it.
