What do we the people want to do about the poor ambulance service we have in Winn Parish. Seems more and more there is not a ambulance available when one is needed. They have a hard time finding where to go, when they are available. The care they give is not up to standard. This is a private ambulance service, do we want to have our own public ambulance service? What do you think.

I think we need a local ambulance service with local people running and working for it. We have a lot of emts and paramedics that live in Winn parish but drive out of town to work. Why? I can't answer that but I can say that If we had a local service I would go to work for them. I went to school to become an EMT about a year ago and did, but when I went to try to go to work in winnfield they were not hiring so I didn't go to work anywhere. I won't to help the people of Winn parish not some other parish. Advanced ambulance service has people from Mississippi working here in winnfield. They don't know tha streets and roads like local people do. I wish the Winn parish fire Dist. would do it but I doubt that will happen. If we had a local service I believe things would be a whole lot better. Just my thoughts!!!

The wonderful people of Winn parish are to stingy and will not pay a tax to have a public ambulance. Advanced is not a bad company and I have seen bad companies before. Advanced doesn't have local resources to have more trucks available when things go hay wire. And also there are not that many people to work a local ambulance service.
Say what you will but Advanced is doing the best the Parish will allow

Before you start speaking of standards you need to have M.D. behind your name. That is what it takes to create the standards at which the sevice is allowed to operate at.
