once again phil brown up to his tricks, fires several people for no reason denies unemployment,so anybody that has a good back gound and don't want it tarnish don't apply for work, if you don't have a crimnal back ground or no teeth or a pedafile you won't qualify for employment,you have thiefs that steal from vol services, it is also not a drug free place, pt care right it's all about money, phil brown a manger give me a break he looses his gas station, has several liens,he has employee's doing his dirty work for him kicking out tendents out of his rentals, he has girls in his office after hrs in his office wonder what his wife thinks about that,i could go on and on so beware do you want medical care or even want them in your house???????? phil brown and seaway are bieng watched very closely several law suits in the works,hopefully this will be the last of phil browns career playing with peoples lives, he been this to long now it's time to put a end to it the legal way,anybody agree with this, time is running out phil brown
car seats

If anyone needs a car seat, call the Seaway Valley Ambulance and they will give you an appt. to come in and get a free car seat, which is age appropriate to your child. They also show you how to use it properly and make sure you can correctly install the seat in your vehicle. When your child outgrows the seat, you can take it in and get a bigger car seat. This is an excellent program and I'm sure the free car seats have already saved lives.

Seaway is a piss poor ambulance service. An ambulance service should be about patient care how ever Seaway Valley is not.The only thing seaway is good for is causing problems it seems with all the news in the paper over the last 2 years.They seem to have alot of problems with Volunteer services because thats profit seaway looses when they dont go and the Volunteers do.No hospital in SLC wants to deal with Seaway Valley!!!
Seaway Valley should have closed when they killed the Nurse on the transport. Seaway has since killed a patient in an accident also.Plenty of other services travel the same amount of miles and dont kill patients (atleast from the ride).
Seaway Valley buys second hand ambulances and second hand equipment which is pieced together over and over.
Seaway is making their own bed and soon enough they will lay in it.

For the record. Never been employed by seaway not a Volunteer and not involved with Massena Rescue in anyway.

And Car Seat . That service is provided by several agencies in the county Fire,Police and EMS . Nothing special Seawway is providing

not all the emts that work there are bad. There are a few who really know their stuff, who love helping people and who are trying to better themselves. If seaway wasnt here and you needed advanced help, something the volunteers at massena, and dont think im putting them down bc they are great, but they dont have as advanced emts as seaway, but if seaway wasnt here, youd be in trouble.

Dont make blanket statements bc not all the employees at seaway aRe losers. Im thankful for them and what they do.

However, phil is an idiot.

It is what it is!!

But your statement about Volunteers is very misleading also.

Seaway is no more of an advanced Life Support than any other agency in SLC or NYS. They are all required to carry the same drugs ect.

Any considering Massena Runs more EMS emergency calls I would side with them.Seaway for years has been a transport agencie between hospitals.

I say if they would work together life would be better for Massena but

kilt wearing maniac - well I hope that happens to you.

I agree that seaway and massena should work together more but massena gets the calls first and if they can't handle the calls, seaway gets toned out.

sheriff got ya - where are you getting your info from? you're wrong. seaway collects what they can from insurance companies and thats it. a lot of people don't pay their bills. these people need to make a living too. what do you do and what would happen if you didn't get paid.

there are problems with that agency but there are problems with any agency. If you have a problem with them, then don't call them when you are dieing or in trouble.

you people are sad and pathetic, get a life and stop bad mouthing people anonymously.

If you want your opinion to carry any weight, then put your name on your comments, other wise you are just sad low life losers. find a new hobby!

Well I used to work there and all that has been said about Phillip Brown is true! He uses and plays all of his employees against each other then fires multiple people with no just cause! I have seen and witnessed all of this first hand. I feel sorry for people that have to listen to him. Hopefully his gets what he deserves on day! Ohno you hit it all right!

so, are u saying that insurance companies under pay them and people like the sheriff that pay cash have to make up for their losses by paying more???

and if seaway collects what they can from insurance companies then why cant cash payers dictate what they pay also...

maybe sheriff got ya should just say this is all ur getting...take it or leave it and let the next sucker pay the difference...

any respectable medical related "vendor" will give cash payers the same rate as the insurance company pays or less...

u are wrong on a technical level and on a moral level!

They only collect what the insurance pays.
Last time I was informed Seaway Valley Hard Billed which means the attempt to collect every penny by all means. This means collections ect.

Also Last time I was aware Seaway Valley Refuses to transport Patients that dont have insurance or the cash to pay upfront. Now that sounds like they are all about patient care and not the $$$$$

Which is also why they attempt to get these contracts with the local towns because if the respond Mutial Aid they cant refuse a patient and take a chance of loosing money.

collections are the last place they want to go! many agencies charge 33% to 50% collection fees.

when they transported my husband to burlington, The ins. co. only paid a small portion of their bill. We were harrassed for a year for the rest of their inflated bill.They caused his injury to be furthered by their lack of knowledge. would never call them again. There is not 1 person there that could really call them sevles Medical Personall.
