The following comments are in response to citizens coming before the Tucker County Commission to voice concerns regarding EMS.
The trivial word "gobbledygook" came to mind. Where are the facts of this situation or is the lack of needed clarity of information, vagueness and innuendo implied, sufficient to draw an incorrect conclusion about the management of Tucker County EMS? What is the purpose of using the words "not right" without providing the necessary information to support your claim? Mr. Luzier reported that his daughter was transported via ambulance and was distressed to learn of employee reprimands resulting from the incident.
However, Mr. Luzier did not elaborate on the reasons behind the reprimands but he believed the way the situation was handled by members of the TCAA Board was "not right" or he has a gut feeling that something is not kosher about their actions without mentioning any specifics.
Then, Mr. Luzier, why don't you tell the Tucker County citizens what specifically was "not right" about the actions taken by the TCAA Board in regard to this incident? Why don't you elaborate on what you are seeing and hearing to make your case convincing with the citizens of Tucker County concerning this issue? Is this just a case of "mud-slinging" and in making baseless charges in the hope that something sticks because you have a hidden agenda to reverse personnel actions already taken by TCAA in bringing up any unsubstantiated charges which may help your cause?
There is a TCAA operational manual and employee handbook for the clear guidance on how to operate an effective organization in providing the best possible EMS service for the citizens of Tucker County. When actions by all personnel are in full compliance with this guidance, then the efficiency of operations is greatly improved. It takes all employees and management working together in harmony to overcome any potential hurdles in services provided. Don't let hidden agendas and self-serving actions by the disgruntled distract you from your primary objective. Thank you.
