Most of our local community and EMS workers (FD, PD), along with most of Acadian Ambulance's employees wish Acadian Ambulance would go out of business. And are desperate for another ambulance company to come to their rescue.
That says a lot about our local emergency ambulance co.
What do you think ?

You're crazy if you think any company would have the nerve to try to take over Acadian, as large and successful as it is. What's wrong with a company that ensures good service, gives job security, is well respected globally, and gives you the freedom to relocate? Yes, it has flaws, but what company doesn't?! When you speak about "most employees" you shouldn't generalize a whole company on the words of a handful of your friends...

I have been with Acadian a long time, and I assure you that the people who work here do so because they enjoy working here. We have great pay, strong knowledgeable helpful supervisors, a great work schedule, benefits, ESOP, and job security. I am sure that when you say that "everybody" wishes Acadian would go out of business, that you are making a very generalized statements based on limited information. More than likely, the people whom you are referring to are "mediocre" at best, and probably dislike Acadian because we expect our employees to be strong confident medics with a good work ethic. Alot of people dont meet our standards, and therefore, form a grudge. Acadian is a great company, and should be welcomed into any area.

I have nothing against the professionals who work for Acadian my beef as long been with the legal monopoly that has been granted to them by our local officials which make me wander who all Richard Z. is entertaining at his Mansion "Duck Camp". I also find it appalling as to their collection tactics even to a person who is completely unable to pay but did have insurance when at one point another service was used and they gladly accepted only that which insurance paid for even out of network. AA rank and file are fine professionals but their business tactics stink.

Would love to see the company go out of business. Company attempts to gouge your eyes out. Large discrepancies in what auto insurance will pay and what medical insurance will pay. People with Medicare pays less than people with private insurance. This company is very much a monopoly and why that is a valid question. I smell rotten fish. Officials getting kickbacks. There is something morally wrong with what this company does. A family in need and then get every penny they can out of them.
