Volunteer Firefighters must improve response time

I never said it was a bad idea to have an ALS engine, but what I meant was you still have to wait for transport unit. And I don’t believe patient care happens in the back of the bus. And I take all my equipment with me at all times. I have always done my job correctly and gave the best patient care. I have done more in my career then most people do in a life time. I have always given 110% to all my patients. I take great pride in what I do and never worried about what others think. I follow my protocols and have always leaded by example; I am a leader not follower. And I will help any partner or person to be better because we are a team. This is the way it was when I worked for NYC-EMS and later FDNY and now at AMR. I am not talking out of my rear I am just stating my point of view from my experience.  (Dec 7, 2008 | post #156)

You like playing word games don’t you. The standard for covering a zone is 25, 000 people for 1 unit. And what is all this talk about ALS engines, what good is an ALS engine if you have no one to transport? Now correct me if I am wrong but Plantation has the same amount of citizens as Davie, but yet they do the job with 1 less rescue and have a better ISO rating. Then what is the problem, they do the same job for less and save money. There going to be big budget cuts coming very soon and things will change. Lynn was right when she said IAFF has out grown there usefulness. Competition is always a good thing it brings the best out in every body. And we will be right in the mix. Like I have said many times before the IAFF is scared they know we can do the job and do it well. We did it before and will do it again. BSO has already been told by the county to cut there budget by 20 million dollars. This will not be the only dept to have trim there budget. The era of big business rescue is coming to a close. We are going to see the return of the separation of Fire and EMS. I know I sound like a broken record, but people just keep talking nonsense. Remember if they took the EMS away from the Fire dept’s you all would be volunteer. Some people say I get crazy about the blogs, but it’s not that I get crazy more then I get mad about the lies. We can all work together, but you think you are better then us. And you are not any better. With age comes wisdom and I hope you get some when you grow up. This is not meant as an insult, this meant you are young and will see there is more to life then the meets the eye. When you get older you start to see thing in a different light and this is the truth. I hope you think about this before you reply which I know you will, but what you say will be the key on how you will perceived.  (Dec 7, 2008 | post #135)

I guess I will never get used to this, people who don’t know what they are talking about. AMR unit carries the same equipment that rescue did. AMR has never left that zone with out a unit to cover that city never. The town of LBTS is better protected now then they were before. Are medics are very well trained and have more experience then BSO. Please if you have no idea what you are talking about keep your commits to yourself.  (Dec 7, 2008 | post #134)

I knew this would be your answer. This happen once and only once, he was an EMT and not just a driver. My point was that anyone can pretend to be anyone at any time. There are back ground checks done and they are very thorough. This will never happen again, we are professional agency. Again I will say that Fire Rescue does not do the job for free. You are in it for the money and the money alone. You don’t do it for the glory or the honor just the money, prove me wrong. You keep bringing up we are for profit so is rescue and you can’t tell me any different. The only reason you bash AMR is you are scared of us. You can not find any dirt on S Florida AMR at all. So you find stuff that means nothing at all. How many FF act like medics and swept under the rug by the union? I know just how unions work. I grew up in New York and me and my family has been involved with bunch of unions. So you can’t pull one over on me. You can keep talking your trash but will shine and the truth will prove you wrong about AMR and will silence once and for all.  (Nov 4, 2008 | post #158)

You should talk what know. BSO got lost all the time in LBTS it took them almost 10 minutes to half a block to a call. They had the worst response times for such a small area. I have never heard the VFD asked for routing. The all well trained and anyone of them could get onto any dept they wanted to. Here is another person who thinks he knows everything about anything. And turns out to know nothing, what a surprise.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #142)

www.hbindependent. com/articles/2008/ 07/03/publicsafety /hbi-campbell05220 8.txt - 47k - www.tollcross.org/ Article918.htm - 27k www.kgw.com/news-l ocal/stories/kgw_0 22208_news_salem_i mpersonator_parame dic_fire.1a9756aa. html - 100k - See I can find stuff too. Anybody at any time can pretend to be something they are not. The bottom line is we are doing a great job and you can not stand it. You can try to put us down but, people are looking and seeing we can do the job and for less, and get the same or better care. And after the budget cuts start we will be doing more. You keep pulling stuff up from other AMR’s but you can not find anything from south Florida. I know AMR is AMR, and if I bring up some stupid thing from another dept I guess that doesn’t count. But in retro spec it does because it is all IAFF. I know you are scared you may be getting a pay cut or they may make work harder for pay check. You guys in s.Fla are spoiled and that will stop soon after the vote tomorrow.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #141)

First of all we trained Davie EMS side for the take over, they wanted to expand there dept. We were not kicked out. 2nd thing we are busy EMS service and do not have time to enter such things. And why must you call me a tool? I know why, you are scared for your job that’s what it is! We can do the job just as good or better and for less. Tuesday we vote and we will see what will happen when the big business of Fire Rescue error comes to a close. And BTW since you want call people name and make false statements, you sir are not a real FF. You are just a glorified Medic driving in your BRT. If you want to see what a real Fireman does go to New York, Boston and Chicago and see how hard they work. When was the last time you fought a real fire. Don’t worry, the bottom will fall out of the F.D. just like it did with housing market after the vote on Tuesday. We have a bunch of towns looking at us to do there EMS. We ran this county before and we will do it again. The reason we are not doing the EMS service now is all politics and gloom and doom tactics of IAFF. You are no better then me or anyone who works at AMR or the VFD. People like you make the rest of us public servants look like clowns. You need to grow up and be a man and not a boy.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #109)

Yes we could have a 3rd, 4th and 5 unit in the city if need be. And this has already happen.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #108)

No you are wrong about your service getting worse, they have only gotten better. 1st AMR is as good or better then any BSO rescue that was there before. AMR has proven time and time again they can do the job, how can you say such a thing. In 29 days we have run a total of 105 calls with an average eta of 3 minutes, and never left the town not covered. 2nd the VFD have done a great job serving the town of LBTS. What have they done so wrong? They train 2 times a week and care about the town like BSO never did.  (Oct 29, 2008 | post #81)

If you have a medical emergency AMR would be the one coming to help with an eta of 3 minutes. AMR is a professional EMS service and we are stationed in LBTS 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Our unit is staffed with 2 Rescue medics and 1 EMT. And AMR’s our back up unit about 1 mile away. And just for your statement about waiting 10 minutes for help, AMR and the VFD have never taken that long to get to any call in the town of LBTS. We do average a 3-6 minute response.  (Oct 29, 2008 | post #77)

You need to be a little clearer on your last post sir. What are trying to say: That FEMA is no big deal or you are you don’t have a FEMA contract, which is it?  (Oct 15, 2008 | post #234)
