What a joke. Called to have my aunt taken to the hospital and was told it would be 3 hours before an ambulance could get there. These idiots ain't volunteers. We took her ourselves and saw 3 ambulances sitting at their office!

Friendship Ambulance is not a volunteer organization. They are a paid service. They are a for profit company. Their business is the transport of patients to and from hospitals in non emergency situations. They do run emergency call if they have a crew available. kiss this

I had a similar problem with them. We waited forever. I know they are a paid service all too well. I paid the bill. It was outrageous. Especially the way the crew looked and that amalance looked like it was about to fall apart and it was filthy. They are a greedy company. You'd think as much as they charge the staff would be required to bathe and wear clean uniforms and clean the trucks. For those fees the trucks should be new! They ain't all that. Beacon at least cleans the interior of their trucks. Thats who we use now.

Let me get this together now, topix has about covered everybody from well known people,churches,hospitals,busi ness places,policemen,social services,sheriff's dept.towns,rescue squads,ambulance services,schools,school board,lawyers,just plain ole hard working people and non working people, jails and prison, fire departments,and ems trained people. Have I left anyone out? Why don't you people get a job and quit down grading everyone that is trying to work and make a living for their family. You people are pathetic.

They're trained to save your ass...not kiss it!!!! Seriously they run 911 calls for lee county volunteers who dont get out plus scheduled trips. And if you see trucks sitting at their office, it could be because they didnt have a crew at that office... In case you didnt know they have 3!!! Best ambulance service around...you want crappy call someone else next time!!!

I disagree beep. Seems like the ones that work there are the ones even the volunteers didn't want. Just my opinion.

So call someone else its that simple those people there work long hours and risk their lives and health to pick you up when your sick or injured and you get on here talking about them I think you all should grow the hell up and get a life...Lee County has no Volunteer Rescue every time they get a call they turn it over to Friendship and how do I know I volunteer for the Pgap FD

Some of the employees at Friendship are nasty looking and creepy. That fat one with the gray beard looks at me a lot. Makes me very uncomfortable. The other fat one with the brown hair, I know his name is Charles, is also a total pervert. The skinny one with the long white trash beard smells really bad. Seems like the only ones with any sense are trucked in from Big Stone or Wise. I think Lee Co. is pretty much screwed either way it goes as far as ambulances go. Those volunteers are never around when it counts and the Friendship nasties are creepy.

My husband works in the pennington office & he is not by any means anything that some of you have said. I am not jimmys wife, charles wife, Garys wife.. But i agree some of them need some hygenie classes but not ALL of them are like that.. My husband works long hours from day light till dark helping others.. So Keep your mouth shut about someone you have no clue about.. & beep this is for you.. you are prolly angie getting on here talking about this excellent paramedic.. No need to make yourself feel like you excellent! Bc your not!

have only had one experience with friendship. i got hurt at work needed to go to the hospital and they refused to run the call! they were only a couple of stores down from where i lay on the floor! had to wait almost 1.5 hrs for jonesville to come and pick me up. the lady that worked on me had no idea how to insert an iv but she insisted on putting one in. my arm was squirting blood like it had been cut off when they took me in the er. so bad the nurses actually thought that was what had happened. sure hope they have improved with time!
good luck
