I do NOT feel that our tax dollars should be supporting the DCAA ---- I also do NOT feel that Flynn should be showing disrespect to a caounty commissioner ---

BUT --- He has TRIED to do a decent job ----

I'm completely amazed at how some people arent happy unless there is drama and crap to stir. Not sure who started this poll but I feel it's very unfounded and unfair. Mr.Flinn makes the choices that he feels is best for the DCAA. Some may not agree with all of his choices but that is something that needs to be dealt with internally not made into a public forum. Of course this is all just my opinion. Others will see it differently IM SURE.

I do not think it should be a poll on if Randy Flinn needs let go, but a poll on if the DCAA should be supported by our tax dollars. I also believe that the DCAA is hiding some vital information that us as citizens should know. They have a ton of calls a day and transport citizens to the hospital everyday but have to have the county commission pay their bills. Where does the money they get for the emergency calls go to?

I believe that they have grown up enough since 2009 or 2010 (which ever year you believe they started up). And should have the "Cord cut" from the commission and see if they can make it on their own as they say they can.

If the Doddridge County Emergency Squad can do it, then why couldn't the DCAA be able to do it?

According the my scanner and my statistics DCEMS gets at least two Emergency calls a day and transports at least one of them a day. So that means out of a month 62 citizens want their help. You might argue that some of them calls would be callers that have called previously in the month. so lets take 20 of those 62 people out for previous callers. So that means 42 citizens still want the DCEMS to provide patient care.

Its time for us as Tax paying Citizens to stand up and say enough is enough. Let them make it or break it on their own.

Just my opinion.

I agree the DCAA needs to support themselves more, but I would not give them FULL control.(meaning to own all the assets).

I suggest turning monies over to the CC for control and distribution. Allow X amounts for bills and ALL other to the county for reimbursement. And I do mean--ALL THE MONEY. Let them operate as other county authorities. Those have to present need and ask for the monies.

Unfortunately, that would be too logical. IMO

You are correct OUTSIDER -- Let them have to face the same budget cuts as the rest of the county agencies had to face ---

It really gripes me that we pay a director 40 grand a year plus benefits and have bought a car to be used as a chase car -- pay for all fuel and upkeep and he drives it back anc forth to his home --- WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO TWO COUNTIES AWAY???? HOW MUCH does THAT PERK COST US????

He should be driving is OWN VEHICLE to and from work -- Just like every other county employee does!

The DCAA is a County agency and it belongs to the people in the county it was formed for the people by the county commission themselves not by private people. Yes they used a panel to go and ask questions of how people (County Residents)felt about the service they were receiving in the county from the regular Ambulance Service but the people wanted to have an agency where there were full time Paramedics and EMT's on call 24hrs 7 days without having to wait for more than 30 minutes or longer for service. People wake up smell the coffee one agency is privately owned and DCAA is owned by the county and is here to assist the people. From what I hear Randy Flinn is very good with his employees and with the people in the community. I also have heard they do pay their own bills and also pay the county for the building and pay on employees payroll "that are county employees". So find something else to whine about they are county employees and a county owned business. DCAA is here for the people. What would make it even better if the two agency's would work together to serve the county and everyone needs could be met even faster. So people we need to grow up and quit the fighting like little kids over a toy. We are better people than this and we are family, neighbors, friends. I may be young but I am smart!

Well, hey .... I agree with "Quietly Obseving" who posted from the Pennsboro server. Wasn't me, but sounds like my "talking points."

And as far as the Randy Flinn poll, don't know who started it, but IMO as far as the issue of whether or not he should go, consider this:

Regardless of whether or not he is a top notch professional...(and I trust that he is) the bottom line is that he LIVES and DRIVES to Doddridge County to work everyday from over in Parkersburg area where he lives. Most other EMS orgs require their EMS Director to either live in the county in which they serve, or at least within a reasonable short distance from the EMS station. Parkersburg is 45 miles away. Is he still driving our tax-payer funded "chase car" or other DCAA vehicle to and from work every day?

And would you rather have an EMS Director who could be on the scene in a matter of minutes when called during off duty hours if needed, or one who lives 45 or more minutes away from the county?

I was not present when he allegedly verbally attacked a county commissioner a while back ...one who was simply asking for info and/or financial reporting from his organization. If true, I'd find it distubring and those two reasons alone would be enough to replace him, in my opinion.

Our DCAA is set up and operated like no other in the state!!! Leave it to Doddridge County to make a mess of things as usual.

I wad @ Tyler speedway 2 weekends ago and guess what I was there. One of your DCAA trucks along with a crew an Mr. Flinn and they called for Tyler EMS 3 do the transports from the speedway. Now but that in your pie whole and eat it because thats all u can do so much smarter. They laugh in your face and talk about u behind your back and lie all they want. You people must be stupid like wood county emt said think about it. He will spend all the money he can and make a mess of everthing. You dont know this man. maybe u can call Tyler County when u need a ambulance.

I happen to know for a fact that the Tyler EMS crew is there to take the emergency runs from the track. Think about this, If there isnt a squad on the property then the races WILL BE SHUT DOWN until the DCAA could make it back.The track staff and all involved doesnt want that to happen. So thats why they take the runs. I love how people think they know everything and run their mouths when they know NOTHING. As for people talking about people behind their backs then they arent much worth listening to then are they?? I think if people are adults then they would deal with things with whomever the issue is with.. NOT ON TOPIX. GROW UP PEOPLE... SERIOUSLY THIS CRAP IS GETTING OLD!!!!

Who pay for the truck if they hit a deer on the way down or back? Oh thats right THE CITIZENS of DODDRIDGE. And what happens if we need that truck in our county? I dont see Tyler County at our County Fair. Cll them and ask them to send a crew to our county to cover something and see what your answer is.

If the DCAA employee who started this has a legit complaint, he/she/they should try to resolve it with Mr. Flynn, and failing that, go to the DCAA BOD, and failing an acceptable resolution there, look for a legal remedy. OR QUIT!!
