Media Is a Joke

I love how the media talked about the EMS service but only interview the fire chief and a Mayor. Which neither one has the authority to send an ambulance! They should have talked to the ambulance chief. And the ambulance at the Ridgetop station is Robertson County ambulance and not Ridgetop's own ambulance, it just happens to be stationed at Ridgetop Fire Station.

“I want to make it better...”

I like the title of this thread but am not sure where you were going with your post. Regardless of whose ambulance it is they still could not make the run until Davidson County requested the help.

Correct they could not respond until Nashville requested them. The reason I wrote the above is I think that if the media would have actually talked to the EMS Chief it might have been better explained. Then it would not be protrayed as a "turf war". Not talking to a mayor saying that he heard the call and was waiting to send an ambulance, which he has no authorty over, and it made Nashville seem like they were to good to ask back up. I just think it could have been better explained.
