MIDLAND CITY: This is the third consecutive day Midland City has not had an ambulance to make emergency medical runs.
ECHO EMS has been makig the EMS runs.
WHY NO MIDLAND CITY EMS? There was a emergency medical call in Midland City. Three with Midland City EMS responded. But they did not go into the residence.
The family came outside and asked were they coming inside to help the person with the medical emergency. What the family member found was the three on the ambulance were in a heated argument. Finally they came inside and were continuing to argue.
The family called Midland City Police. They came over. Finally the three Midland City EMS loaded the patient and transported to a local hospital.
The EMS personnel quit.
Since Sunday ECHO EMS has been making the runs. Day 3 of making the EMS runs for South Dale County. And so far Midland City is not in operation.
WHERE IS THE SOUTH DALE EMS FOLKS? You know the Napier Field Police Chief, Jimmy Singleton, broke the Alabama Open Meetings law and kicked me out of the meeting between the 5 Mayors and others over South Dale EMS. Over their restive councils directives no, these Mayors were bound and determined to get South Dale EMS up and running.
So far they have been unable. There has been discussion of placing someone over South Dale EMS who was fired from an agency for sexual misconduct in the performance of his duties.
That has not been announced.
When this issue first started Jeffrey Atkins was the person to be in charge. And what he was saying was challenged as not the truth. Now Atkins has gone AWOL.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO MIDLAND CITY EMS?
Called Midland City Police at 6:06 PM. Asked was Midland City Ambulance available and they said there were not. That I would have to call Ozark - Dale County 911 also known as 26 Central. I asked were they on a run and was told no, but again I would have to call 26 Central.
I asked could she give me the Midland City Mayor's cell phone number. She said that she was not allowed to give it out. Then I asked what that a city or personal number the Mayor had and she said all that she had was the Mayor's personal cell number. I asked her would she call the Mayor and ask her to call me.
WHERE IS PINCKARD MAYOR AND NEWTON MAYOR?
Good question. They wanted Midland City EMS and not ECHO EMS. Being without a ambulance they have done nothing to have someone on standby. Someone called 26 Central and told them they would not have a ambulance.
No one has heard from the Mayors of Midland City, Napier Field, Pinckard and Newton.
ECHO EMS has wanted clarification of their plans. If ECHO given the green light they will staff a crew and place them on Highway 231 and the crew at ECHO.
WITH NO EMS CREW AND NO PLANS FROM THE 5 MAYORS
One would have to assume they have Holamn Funeral Home of Ozark and Fuqua Bankston Funeral Homes of Ozark on stand by. Because these Mayors have no arrangement for EMS to save lives on stand by.
THESE MAYORS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR NEGLECT OF DUTY.
And called to a medical emergency, no one goes in, and they stand in the yard and arguement. Come on guys!
