What a wonderful thing for the young ladies to do for our community. Keep up the great work ladies and thank you to your volunteers that helped.

Mohawk has already broken their agreement. They only have one ambulance stationed in the town at any given time, not the two suggested by the town board. Why does the board need to disp MAS for a " seamless transition" according to Buffardi? Sounds like they already know who's gonna win the contract! It would seem more seem less with REMS Ssince the town has been dispatching them for 77 years vs. having to call MAS to disp a crew every time there is a call. Hummmmm seems like there's a rat somewhere!

REMS is a functioning ALS agency currently and there is a paramedic assigned 24/7. Buffardi and Calder won't answer calls from REMS management to know that. The town also made the medic program fail. They set the minimum paramedics on duty to one and the countless shifts gone uncorked are false. Those shifts are the second medic they don't require. The puppet Police chief and deputy puppet chief were told numerous times that the 2 full time medics and 11 part time medics could not continue to full the schedule. Ni second medic was ever scheduled from 1am-6am and Amazingly enough one of the chiefs buddy's needs a paramedic and ambulance and they are tied up on another call and MAS has no ambulances available its an issue and the system he set the guidelines for is failing. Now all the paramedics are gone and the chief, dep chief, or newly promoted sgt who was the paramedic supervisor didn't even have the professionalism to contact the medics to tell them or talk to anyone in person. They forced a lieutenant to do it instead. The town administration is a true disgrace and are all corrupt. I'm sure when they need an ambulance and have to wait for 20,30,40 minutes for Mohawk to finish a transport to a nursing home they will see that they have failed the town. Not the town medics and REMS. Call these officials and let them know your feelings. Ooh by the way your taxes won't be going down with the loss of medics. The MAS employees don't even want the added call volume they know they are overworked already and can't handle what they have now. MAS has 10 sets of ALS gear for the whole company and they promise 2 paramedic ambulances will be staffed at the town owned senior citizen center so tell me what other municipality will suffer.

Glenville is lucky to have you! Keep up the good work. I can't believe the job was ever part time.

You forgot to mention the bagel shop on Curry road. Another hot spot to hang out and do nothing! This is how GREEDY self absorbed politicians act when the public speaks out and replaces cronyism with republican candidates! Buffardi, Calder and Jasenski are all corrupt and need to go!!!! The numbers the town spewed out last night we skewed and done by the chief of thieves and his deputy! Who not better to cook numbers than the guy who gets paid more to do less!

No need to be sorry. You just don't know. Where would one gather the skills to manage a police and fire communications center? Think about it. There may be unretired people qualified, but they are working on their pension!

That s the point, there are no qualified non retired people out there to do this job. For example would you want a hard worker in a tough economy to do surgery on you or would you want a qualified surgeon. People learn these skills in the field , not working for IBM.
