Goddammit! No ambulance company runs 911.
Some dickweed ambulance company makes emergency runs from calls dialed to 911 and received by the 911 system as requested by dispatchers for the 911 system.
Difficult as it is for you cab drivers for Care or TC to believe YOU ARE NOT RUNNING 911.
Papaw, you appear to be having a hard time understanding that elementary fact that ambulances do manage 911 contracts and are responsible for staffing, responding, dispatching, and transporting ambulances within Vigo County for 911. You seem to know everything and are certainly very articulate with your vernacular.. I can only imagine you are a disgruntled, terminated TC employee who lost his unemployment hearing and is now eating free soup and cheese at the Light House Mission while using their free computer to cuss and insult everyone.

Ambulance companies do manage their own contracts to provide AMBULANCE SERVICE to a community. They do not in any way manage 911.
Wrong again, I have never worked for an ambulance service provider.

To get things off on the right foot, I'm not an advocate for either company nor am I employed by either. I am a responder within the area for which both companies have responded. I have had patients and family members standing there looking at us asking us why are you not transporting their loved one when TC has outragious enroute time for reasons unknown, and finding out that they pulled a Vigo unit or a Clay unit to make the run. Because I have had it happen in both counties that I have recieved the opposite unit from another county and have had to wait for 20 - 30 minutes. When their ETA was requested 5 mins was given. 15 minutes later we get a BLS crew out of Clay or Vigo whichever scenario you would like to use. I understand that happens, If you have been in the EMS long enough, its an easier corner to cut when your short staffed. However, the communities that we serve deserve better than that. I am definately not saying CARE is the answer. Every company has its hiccups. If CARE thinks they can run the Vigo 911 out of Indy then they are so so mistaken. They can"t control their units now and with the convo runs that they do not to mention they are catching the occassional 911 rollovers for THFD and TC tosses them a bone now and agian. But they try to manage it from and Indy dispatch center and that DOES NOT MAKE SENSE to me when the have the financial backing to place a dispatch center within the county but don't. Good Luck ladies and gents!!
Well Russ, good try but not true. The 911 system is managed by the county and not you or Care. Just the dispatching of those calls. You manage your runs in Indy out of TH so why not Care manage TH out of Indy. Dispatch is nothing but a computerized system linked to the ambulance. Care has a system that you can't come close to. Yours is Mickey Mouse in comparision. With hi-tech sytems and satilite it's simple. They are on the cutting edge and you are not. You can't afford it. All your equipment is out dated, the county should not have to help fund your recover. are is doing the contract for free. You?

I am not sure of much but I am sure TC has Sarellite linked to their ambulances and know where they are via a screen. This came from Becky Blagrave (Spelling). I am not sure of her title but she is the EMS guru in area 7. I asked her privately about Care but she wouldn't comment but was professionally polite about TC. She didn't come out and endorse TC but made it very clear that there was a clear choice with Trans-Care having the technological and in her opinion edge over Care. I would say to any objective observer...Case over for Care.

Well then she is stupid. Care has all vehicles on LARGE HD screens 24/7. TC has a GPS on a dry erase board. C'mon Russ you can do better than that. It's time to just set back and see what happens. This is getting boring.

She is an IDHS EMS Field Coordinator and I do not believe your version of the conversation.

You probably don't believe in Jesus either. Ask her for her opinion then you don't need to question my version. The conversation took place at a family reunion of my wife's.

Regardless of which company gets the 911contract, the other company isn't going anywhere. 911 contracts are a break even proposition at best. The money is in the convo runs. 911 just helps support the framework of the entire operation making it stronger.

The ambulance companies make money from the personal contracts they con residents into signing guaranteeing them a lesser price for future runs.

TC offers SecureCare cards to the Elderly for $65 per month. This will allow then not to be eligible for the balance of the Medicade run cost. The catch, its for non-emergent runs only. They list all runs as emergent nullifying the card. What a RIP OFF. TC is all about the money.

It's all about money. The topix here is about who deserves it more. Your reply was about the money he screws people out of by his typical "contractual agreements". Get with it.

Read the fine print on the contract/agreement.

People make choices.

If you want anything in life you have to get off your ass and work for it just like the rest of us did.
