The city recently renewed there agreements with three local ambulance companies.
The agreements give the companies the right to offer non-emergency ambulance services in the city limits.
The city only provides ambulance services in cases of emergency.
We still end up paying the city even if we don’t use a fire department ambulance and instead use one of these private firms.
The agreements with the companies require them to pay 2.75% of what they collect.
That amount is of course added to our bill.
We deserve better
