1 no way revealing July 16, 2014 at 8:53 AM

I am not trying to be insensitive but are all these EMS calls which by the way require a fire truck as well, going to the same house, do they pay for it? It seems that it may be attention this person is seeking as well. And shouldn’t they have a private service if our town services have to go there at least once a week?

I’m not sure where you are referring to – and the EMS calls don’t list home addresses. But if you are referring to Newton Street or Boston Road – Colonial Gardens affordable housing has a lot of senior residents and is on Boston Road. Newton Street has Southborough Medical Group – and calls in an EMS when they determine one of their patients should be transported to a hospital.

Also to shed more light on your question “no way revealing” it is most beneficial to have a town run ambulance by the fire dept. as opposed to a private ambulance company. A fire dept. run ambulance can generate income for the town where as a private ambulance would not. The patients insurance would cover the medical costs for transport, use of IV’s etc. More towns and cities are transitioning to fire dept. ambulance services. Firefighters today are required to be paramedics or EMTS. Many towns and cities have calls that are routinely for elderly housing complexes or medical buildings. If SFD is at an ambulance call when another medical call arises, there are mutual aid agreements where another fire ambulance from a neighboring town would come to help. If a fire truck goes to a medical call, it is probably is for additional help with moving a patient or keeping a patient stable regarding their medical condition. Fire engines or ladder trucks can also be considered “non transporting ambulances” because of the type of medical equipment they carry and the medical training the crew has.
