I seem to remember they just bought a new Ambulance am I remembering correctly? Or is that just the Un-marked family vehicle that they purchased? Hired another ESDA guy, did someone retire? Can we get put on the list to get one of those jobs? How do you think that would happen?
E$SDA is volunteer, you want to apply just go to city hall and ask. You will be working for free just like the other members. BTW, they are looking for members right now, go sign up.

Hahaha .... maybe if they didn't just donate a million dollar building they bought we could have a new ambulance.
The building wasn't donated, the charity group was looking for a place, and the city loaned them the basement with the knowledge that it can be sold out from under them at any time. We know who you are, and have never heard of you participating in any local charity program, just a lazy local whiner. Does it piss you off that Hank is running unopposed? Thought you were going to file petitions, where were you big mouth?

I did some fact finding. In this area North Palos and GFrankfort use a service that provides trained personnel at a fraction of the cost. They were their uniforms and the ambulance says Frankfort and North Palos respectively. I was told several towns out west and up north use the same service. So that makes your point moot.
Tinley has a contract with Trace ambulance. I asked and found out the paramedics working for Trace have the same traing as Oak Forest. They also said Trace paramedics have a lot more experience then oak Forset paramedics because they run 3 times the amount of calls covering Tinley Park.
Tell me how is this system wrong. Why is it we can not explore this option in Oak Forest. If it did not work the other towns would not have this type of service in place. We need to save money and here is a great way. Listen to the people and your check book not your fire union. That is what it boils down too.
How Long have you worked for Trace?

So what if they work for Trace. The post was dead on. If it were not you would have posted a retort.

Never happen in Oak Forest, we love our service the way it is, and we don't mind paying for it.

Nice answer union firefighter. Why would you want to give up a very very very cush job. Do not reply how dangerous your job is. This is Oak Forest not Roseland.

I'm just an ordinary resident who once used our ambulance. I had to use a private company once also, no comparison to ours.

If i call a ambulance I want trace, a full-time paramedic, not some part-time firefighter that some how is a certified paramedic that only works 1 day a week, if my house is on fire they will save my Foundation, that is why I pay home owners insurance

You are correct, not one of those towns hold a candle to Oak Forest. If you want private, move to Harvey.

That is why 5 fire departments respond on a house fire, when years ago oak forest could've handled it itself, next they will have pink fire trucks
