Here's some fuel for thought; Do they have their own parking space at Wal Mart? Sure do see alot of grocery shopping going on with the use of the communities ambulances! Wounder who is paying for the fuel for those shopping spree's? If anyone wants to see for themselves just sit in the parking lot and count how many times a day/week they do their shopping when they are supposed to be transporting patients. NO Gossip JUST FACT!!!!

you said it perfect wtf. they also own parking spaces in grant county-just check their sheetz, peking, the third base and petersburg fire department. not only do they do a lot of grocery shopping in moorefield, they suck a lot of free drinks in grant county (and god knows who they all suck in that building on top of the hill in petersburg). ALL AT TAX PAYERS EXPENSE-BOTH HARDY AND GRANT COUNTIES. I wonder if the tax dollars from each county are seperately accounted for or if they are put in a big pot?

you are right wtf--"no gossip JUST FACT!!!!"
Good point

1st of all......i know a few people that DID recieve collection notices because they were not able to pay for all/ or some of their bill...
2nd....yes i can see by the that expenses are high to maintain your squad...how much is accurate who knows, but in 2009 salaries paid out were around $ 735,000....or at least thats what was presented on the 990 form.....how many of these employees were paid under the table????.....i know of a few....
3rd....i never said anyone got rich, just seems that way....and i like to correct something i said about the directors padding their pockets....maybe i should say when they can set their own pay scale will be a more accurate....
4th.....if your squad is getting most of its income thru non-emergency transports then why are you still considered a non profit organization.....seems like a business to me
.....what ever happened to just being a rescue squad, going out to run calls, helping the out your neighbor, being recognized as an asset to the community.....when did it become all about money....yes, i know you need to survive in todays world, but what gives?
I ran with them for years. When it started becoming about money that's when I stopped running. Money creates evil. An that's not what volunteering is about. We lost some good emt's when everything changed.

You people need to think outside the box a little. First, those people work 12 and 24 hour shifts. Are they not allowed to eat or get groceries to take back and cook at the station??? Secondly, the ambulances need to run in order to maintain a certain temperature in the back. So what if they are out and about, if there is a call they will respond!!!

"BOOM" GOES THE DYNAMITE..........
kinda funny how things happen isnt it.....SEE the Cumberland Times News
BUT JUST FOR THE PEOPLE READING THIS, THE FIRE COMPANY OF MATHIAS-BAKER IN NO WAY OR FORM WAS INVOLVED IN THESE CHARGES......PRETTY SAD THAT A RESCUE SQUAD NEEDS TO DO THIS TO THE COMMUNITY THAT SUPPORTS THEM......
......BELIEVE ME ...THERE IS MORE NEWS TO COME OUT OF THIS STORY- ALOT MORE.......
IM SURE ATTENTION NEEDS TO BE TURNED TO THE TRANSPORT STATION RUN BY BAKER-MATHIAS IN PETERSBURG WV....SUPPORT MATHIAS-BAKER FIRE DEPT....

Cant wait to see what our local county commisioneers will have to say about this now that its out in public.....
i wonder if we will see any names associated with these charges.....im not against the rescue service, or what they do as a VOLUNTEER organization.....but the people involved, that knew what they were doing to take advantage of the citizens of these counties. their names need to be mentioned as they are what gave the rescue squad a bad name

in my unbiased opinion....What a load of garbage this story is....trying to turn it around that now people are dying because its medicare and medicaid fault, because we cant screw you over now....and what a bunch of horse manure that they only found fault on 5 different cases in two years, to me if thats was true i dont think it would be a million dollar fine now would it......
the only thing that was good in the whole story was that someone did come forward and say that the fire dept. was not involved......
also isnt it funny that everyone in the past that was defending the rescue squad has yet to comment at all now that the word on the street is now a fact......
im sure their is more to this story not being told, but im also sure we wont hear about it in the moorefield "good greif" have some "kickballs" and right a damn story examiner.

the word on the street is that the mathias baker RESCUE SQUAD had some serious penalties brought against them over medicare fraud....i heard it was a 1.4 million dollar fine......can anyone elaborate?, or tell me where i can get infomation about this.....i believe it needs to be posted in the local papers about its wrong doing....and why is it that we as citizens are funding this squad with our taxes and contributions/donations when they are charging for responding to medical calls. not that im against the squad, as they do us a service, but did you know that in 2008 their gross reciepts were $ 1,473,407.00.
just as a side note the MATHIAS BAKER FIRE DEPT. is no way associated with this squad, it is correct that their are members in both organizations but not all were aware of the stupidity of the board members of the rescue squad. by the way the fire dept doesnt charge to respond when you are in need,they gross $ 498,903.00 in 2008. These donations/contributions by the citizens and landowners im sure are greatly appreciated by those courageous volunteers.
yes its true. some. one needs to get the shit together. fire com.and squad is still together if you like so meny other get a letter itsaya (mbvf and eq have been working together ) thay call them self volunteer's but that all stand with thair hand out and if you get a bill from them you will know way thay all drive .have the best .the president of both company's and there so called leader R.H have nice pocket books .who sleeping with who its not hard to tell .so as far as mbvc go please call moorefield unless you wont f---k

Some of these remarks are uncalled for.Whether it's paid or volunteer,the ems personnel and fire fighters are in it to help and save people's lives.They're just doing their job,what they enjoy doing,it's not their fault what happen to the squad.They also might sit on their butts waiting for a call but when a call comes in they are out the door.So don't bash other squads and the personnel.I don't care who comes to help me or my family as long as someone shows up.

I agree w/PGT 100%. Besides, what is the Squad's reason for doing what they did? They may not have known that what they were doing was wrong. I can't imagine that they would have been doing those transports if they knew it was wrong w/Medicaid. Just saying. I'd like to know their stance on it before making any judgments on them. It irritates me when people are so ready to attack people without knowing the entire situations. There are so many rules and regulations that agencies have to know and follow.

Well Here we go, YOU NEED ATO GET YOUR SHIT TOGATHER!! The Fire company and the Squad are as one by NAME ONLY!! the only thing the Fire co charges anyone for is to fill YOUR swimming pool or cystern, NOTHING ELSE!! If you dont want to contribute to our BUCKET Drive Because of not knowing where the money goes then mail a check to the MATHIAS/BAKER FIRE CO. Then you will know where it went. AND the MOOREFIELD FIRE CO also STANDS WITH THEIR HANDS OUT FOR DONATION'S TOO!! I Am PROUD to Be a member of the Mathias/ Baker VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY And have been for almost 40 years. So When the tones drop for Mutuial Aid Think About It. As far as the sleeping around, WELL I think ONE of The member's from across WAS SCREWING AROUND WITH ALOT OF WOMEN WHILE OVER HERE AND GOT CAUGHT AND WENT BACK TO MOOREFIELD.so don't try burning other's hands when YOUR'S HAVE BEEN BURNT!!! AND THAT IS THE TRUTH!!!
