Just was thinking about the ambulance for Mt.victory and wanted to hear what people thought about it i have seen and heard some of there calls on the scanner and it takes them about 20 mins or more to get the ambulance to scene also i have seen twice now young kids in the ambulance while there where on calls i am really not happy about the ambulance also i know for a fact that there was a paramedic that tryed to get on and that they would not let her because the head emt is only a emt i which is lower then a paramedic and cant do half of the things a medic can and she did not want to give up her spot or have someone over her telling her what to do i think the people of the distric sould have the best care posible and they are not getting it I also was told by a emt b the lowest level of emts that she wanted to get on but she could not becuase she is taking a emt i class and that the head emt told her that if she wanted to run with them that she wold have to quite the emt i class and run as a emt b till the head emt said that she could take the class becuase if she was a emt i she could run the scence and the head emt did not want her to be able to out rank her well the state of ohio has test you have to pass in order to be a emt and they do not let any one run that is not ready and trained so why does this women get to pick and chose who she wants why does the ems board let her do that aslo there is a ambulance in mt.victory but ever time they are called all of the emts ether go to the call in there own cars or stand on the corner in mt.victory and wait on the ambulance from ridgeway to come pick them up which takes 20 mins to get there and then to the call the point of calling 911 is to get help fast and to get to the hospitle fast well from what i hear on the scanner i could drive to the hospitle in kenton before they could get to my house the fire dept. is twice as fast most of the car recks they are one they take about 5 to 10 mins to get on scence and then the ambulance comes about 10 or 15 mins later now i dont know how it all work but from what i understand the fire dept. gets people out of the car but htey can take them to the hospitle or really help the people to much so they just wait on the ambulance to come and do what they can till they get there even if the call is in mt victory and the mount victory emts go they are told to go to scence and wait till the ambulance gets there from ridgeway there is a ambulance at the mt victory fire house but even though there are emts all ready in town they are not allowed to drive to my.victory ambulance why is that is it becuase the head emt wants to be the hero i think so just wanted to know what everyone else thinks

Oh I agree 100%. I seen a little girl in the ambulance all by her self and the ambulance was running.I do not think that is it safe at all and why is a kid even in the ambulance? The EMT's were in the resturant loading a older woman on the cot when I got inside I ask why a kid was alone in a running ambulance and everyone just shrugged their shoulders! We have a scanner too and I hear the calls and you are right the response times are unreal! Why is one person calling all the shots I thought there was a board of people who run the squad? We hear other squads in the area called out on the scanner and they respond right away I know this because I hear them say when they are on scene and it is usually with in 5-10 min. We live in this district and when we needed a squad they called them out 3 times and no one came so we called another district and they were here in what seemed just a few minutes. Maybe those of us who live in this district need to ban together and get to the bottom of this before someone dies due to slow response times.

I beleive there is probably some truth to what you are saying, Just Saying. The squad sits in Ridgeway at a woman's house name Faye. She has been on the squad for many years. I am not sure what her authority is when it comes to the squad but she must have some. The unfornate part for me is I live in the Southeast Hardin EMT area, which is Mt Victory squad.

they have 2 squads one sits in Mt. victory at the fire station the other sits at kathy ansley's house in ridgeway. No matter what they always take the squad from ridgeway even if the run is in Mt. Victory. The squad is run by the board but they listen to kathy's bs. She wont let a paramedic on or let some of the EMT-B get there Intermediate. They run it how they want. They have there little click which is kathy, peggy, and kathy's one duaghter. It's crazy the crap they pull. If you run on the squad you have to be careful because they will kick you off the moment you question there ways. Someone else needs to be running it and the board needs to get a clue.

she just wants to be the one that gets paid for the run because only the first 2 emt that respond get paid.

I live in their squad district. I have informed my family to thow my behind in the family car and drive like heck for the ER but do not call that squad. My family could have me to the ER faster than they can get to my house and then find people to lift me into the squad. They call for lift assist all the time. If they cannot lift why are they on the squad? Sad thing is everyone knows the incompetence yet no one does anything to change it!

Cool Daddy who gives a rats butt what you think? You do understand the term Cool Daddy went out in like the 60's right?
Now for this squad it is about outdated as your name and I will have you know other squads have picked me up without complaint! So here is another 60's slang you might understand make like a tree and leave from this forum!
