Canyon Lake Fire Department and Am bulance that I would like to respond in Your Letters to the Response the the New Advance Life Support System Ambulance First of I would like to praise the Canyon Lake Fire Department and Am bulance Service for their loyal service to the and all of the Volunteers and Auxiliary for their time and They are much I do have some real great con cern on my as to the purchase of or Advance Life Support System Ambulance at this I would much rather see more well equipped well trained and basic trained with continuing based all around the Lake than to have or very expensive ambulances in or The response for any is most important and get the patient to the Emergency and not some one at the if I have pains in my or abdominal as to whether or I am having a heart or gall bladder as to whcih unit should be It is not up to the Volunteer to diagnose or but to relay vital symp and give Basic First and relay i PROPOStOAtMfOFUFt UP tfc NATIONS AIUN6 FAMILY A FARM FAMILY IS EU6I01ZFORA UIAYOFIJFBUHN FIRST MUSTPROVBTHeY VOW THINK I COULPNT SHOULD WEAK WCAUCO these to either the Emergency or then from their Otherwise you are apt to have some Malpractice suits on your If the Fire Department pays all the bills and maintains all of the why does the Ambulance Service feel they have to be from the Fire Department Many volunteers serve in both plus hold full time Im sure the Fire Department could also use some new and more At the Fire is operating in the so please dont start getting ahead of ourselves This ALS Ambulance would be expensive to and the training of then they are going to want a present service seems quite adequate and Sure Id love a but only can afford a but it still gets me Also its paid If we were a large Metropolitan area thank goodness we as that is the reason we live in the then I would be all for but we are spread out all around the Lake so it seems much more logical to have more well equipped ambulances and stationed all around the Lake which would seem more suitable to meet our needs at the present Maybe in the near future we will have enough that would require but definitely not Thanks again to all of the Volunteers of both the Fire Department and the Am bulance for giving yoru time and also to those who contribute their we need you Most people dont appreciate your services until they need Then quick response time is the most im Margaret Mailbag policy The HeraldZeitung welcomes the opinions of its and were happy to publish letters to the Letters are published on the Opinions page as soon as they are unless delayed by
