Hawkins county resque squad did not charge u $500.00. The e.m.s. charged u $500. There is a difference between the two. The rescue squad doesn't charge for their service.

fyi is absolutly correct!!! ems charges about 700$ a mile to ride along with you whether you need it or not,they are trained to convince you that you need them .that is one of the reasons that no-one can afford insurance . ask the c.e.o. of the e.m.s. that just paid almost 1/2 a million dollars for property worth 100,000 $..

If you were in a life or death situation and needed medical care, exactly how much would your life be worth? Just wondering.

This didn't fly a couple weeks ago, so are you going to beat this dead horse again?? Green with envy are we??? Why don't you take what money you have left and try to buy a life? I praise the EMT's, when they save a loved one's life, then you will possibly change your tune!

the next time issues about the cost of insurance comes up in your household and your bitching about it , think about what your saying now . one of the biggest stories on the news for many years is the cost of insurance and why people cant afford it . goverment is putting caps on outragous charges to insurance co. because ALL medical people say what is your life worth . when you drive thru town on saturday and firefighters and ambulance are are asking for change , you wont here them say what is your life worth .

Just saying $500 was too much to charge for a mile ride in an ambulance with non life threatening injuries with an EMS personell. Is that the going rate per mile? If it is it is still a rip off does your conscious not bother you for doing that? Don't get me wrong I appreciate the hard work you do in life threatening situations but this was just minor injuries.

Does the EMS have to respond to every call? I guess there is some kind of liablity there, if they don't. I had someone tell me, that they get calls, because someone's leg is hurting, their back hurts, or they are vomiting, etc. For Gods sake, tell them to get their butt in a car, and let someone take them to the doctor, like any normal person would. It's things like that, people taking advantages of services, that has our insurance and everything else sky high. Good grief, there has to be a way to stop this stuff. The taxpayers are paying dearly for this kind of stuff. I hurt all the time, but I just take Advil. The EMS should be called for emergencies only.
