Ambulance Service Availability in Buffalo NY

I was reading in the BN an article by Luke Hammill speaking to Jay Smith of RM Ambulance about the struggles RM were having with responding to EMS calls in Buffalo NY, and Jay Smiths comments didn't reflect on how RM was actively seeking positive, progressive solutions his Explanation is as follows, and I quote "Emergency Responders have contacted the BN to complain that Ambulances sometimes cannot respond to True Emergencies because they are to often picking up FREQUENT FLYERS, or people who repeatedly call 911 for non-Emergencies and often don't have to pay for the service they get". First off, Wrong, Wrong, Wrong, it's immoral, unethical, and just Wrong! Rural Metro your Only job is to have enough Ambulances to handle the Call's period. It's not up to you sitting behind your desks trying to intellectualize peoples Need's.(from the BN) Rural Metro has 12 locations where Ambulances are posted in the City, and some of these Ambulances are often responding to other Call's. Rural Metro also covers many suburban area's; officials said the Company posts about 50 ambulances system wide every day.the Fire Department is called as well, and are Trained as EMT's- often beat the Ambulance to the scene because the Departments 19 Fire Houses are usually closer".This statement reinforces my thinking- put more feet in the street, more wheels on the ground, or start packing your bag's and go back home we don't need you we have it covered.Your Honorable Mayor Brown are you Ready? County Executive Mark Polincarse what can you bring to the table, the infrastructure is there the people are there is your Leadership there.Over crowding in the ERAmbulances are stacked up eight deep as they wait for space to become available at area Emergency rooms Smith said, and clearing a patient can sometimes take 90 minutes or more. It's not a criticism of the hospitals directly (Really?) Smith said they do work with us to try to figure out ways to make it quick. Seriously folks that problem has existed throughout EMS History but I must say it has gotten much worse, and the only ones that have any effect on this situation lives in the status of theirs nothing wrong if nobody die's well people are dying needlessly.Now is the time of effort, cooperation, and ethical, moral approach to this issue, not politics

I was born an rasied in Buffalo, NY, an havent lived there in over 42 yrs, because of the political red tape it takes to get any progress moving in the place i love so much. There are much larger cities that are models on how a city can work. Take a note from history if nothing changes, changes nothng If you want the great city of BUFFALO, to continue an prosper(the rural area), os people have moved to the burbs, to geta etter quality of life, which I BELEIVE BUFFALO HAS LOST ITS WAY, ARENT'T PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO COME FIRST, HOW DID YOU GET INTO OFFICE WITHT THE PEOPLE
