Hmmmm wonder were South Windsor Ambulance was.....seems to me they are never around when you need one. I see Manchester Ambulance more often in town than South Windsor but yet they have no problems begging us for money every year. Just wondering if they even pay rent at the new firehouse? At one time both Keith Yagaloff and Cary Prague were to be researching this subject.

Pam, I brought this up a the last town council meeting. There will be a resolution at the next meeting directing the town manager to implement ALS ambulance service in South Windsor. I believe we have the support of the entire town council to bring about this important change. Our community deserves a full time around the clock ALS (advanced life support) ambulance service. South Windsor ambulance will have the opportunity to compete with other companies to provide ALS service. Thus far they have only been willing to provide basic life support services, which means that calls need to be made to ASM in Manchester for the most serious calls. There is too great a risk to our residents to continue with the current set-up and I am hopeful that the public will support this change as well.

Thanks Keith for all your help on this! I have been saying for over 10 years that SWAC needs to provide ALS services to the residents. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Now how about getting them to pay rent on the new firehouse? lol
