It seems dear old Mike Akins is back in the ambulance business. He is reopening Portsmouth Ambulance.It should be up and running by March. Look to see alot of old faces working there again. Able what will you do without your CEO? KDMT might as well close Portsmouth and South Shore stations down.Life you are selling out at a good time P.A. will take over, it already has many Nursing Homes Lined up and ready to sign.
What does all this mean for the Ambulance Business? Only one will rule again. It is clear P.A. is here to stay and if any EMT'S /Paramedics are smart they will get in while they can.I myself am glad to be part of the dream team and love it.

Word is able already has their new CEO picked out. He's already in management there and should have actually taken russ's job long ago. The new CEO has a backbone and will straighten that place up.

Why would anyone wanna go back to work for the Adkins? They've sold the place twice already and left the employees high and dry. They are in it for the almighty dollar. And only care about a very very select few.

You people will never learn. No wonder people think area emts are so dumb.

I don't know if the able CEO would leave an established company to crawl back to the Adkins. Surely not.

Does anyone know if this is actually true? Or is this all speculation? Just b/c there's cars there don't mean he's opening an ambulance company.

the almighty dollar.... Hmm i guess pistole and mcginnis are just all about patient care and doesnt matter about making money. Your an idiot, private services are about making money! So what if he sold twice. Sounds to me he knows how to run a business. Knows how to make money. What is the problem in that? Im sure alot of old faces will be standing at the door should he start a new company. I will be! I will give pistole my two week notice though!!

And what ya gonna do when Adkins decides to sell in 2 yrs?

Able will be just fine if CEO goes to pa. I think new blood running that place might be good for it. MS would do a great job!!!

Life will keep it's hold on Portsmouth. Pa will never regain the status they once had. It's in the past people. Pa's chance has come and gone. The Adkins hold zero credibility with the local facilities.

First of all, Mike & Trina ran PA for more than 20 years and before that, they ran Medic Transport and before that, they had an ambulance service in Lancaster, Ohio, so if anyone knows about the way to run a business like that, it's definitely them!!!!

All this trash talking about them selling out is a bunch of b/s!!! Business was booming when PA was in business and it will be again when they re-open those doors!!! All these facilities loved using PA because they chose employees that cared about the safety and welfare of their patients!!

Haven't you ever heard that old saying your mom used to tell you growing up??? IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY, DON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL!!!!

Grow up!! If you don't like them, then don't like them but don't force your feelings on others that feel differently!!!!!!!!!

It is true, they are reopening as Portsmouth Ambulance. I for one can't wait, now the name Portsmouth Ambulance can be restored since the crack sisters Joy and Sherri buried it in the mud.

I am so sick of all these ambulance services in this area. Mike will hire only the best employees and will take control of this area. Just like old times, I really missed it.

Mike will NOT sale PA again. He had a plan all along to reopen it. I personally am glad his children are involved in the company now as well.

OMG if memory serves me right & Im pretty sure it does, all those good lookin' women were either bi-sexual or gay and the entire company just like Life were burnin thru each others beds as fast as they could alotta relationships were ruined because of the sexual shenanigans at Portsmouth Ambulance and Life Ambulance. There were women goin after women, the same women goin after the men married or not and men just gettin it anywhere they could. Better put security cams in all the stations it might calm all those hot asses down a bit. Alotta marriages and relationships came to abrupt end when husbands and wives started working there. I can think of six marriages that ended due to the activity at work.

ok mr imposter use your oen name! Unions are shit, they are worthless and will not make it. For the rest of you downing mike and trina, i worked there too. I loved my job, so maybe i was underpaid, arent we all? How many of you can honestly say you are paid what you think your worth?? Well?? Overworked, hmm who that have worked in ems have not felt overworked?? We all have. Mike has said emts are a dime a dozen, guess what they are!!! He doesnt need to put up with lazy ass people that want to lay on there ass and get paid. If you were running a business, you wouldnt either!!! Times are changing, the adkins bunch know how to run a business!! Watch and learn there mikey p and jim m!!
