New spokesperson?

Post by dr on Fri Dec 19, 2008 1:05 pm

From JSN TRR:

"At budget season, you will hear the same thing every year from the RFD.

RFD: We saved a lot of basements.

Finance Committee: We know you did but while you were at it, you let four other buildings burn. And, instead of using the pumper truck to get water out of the Androscoggin, you used the fire hydrants which not only cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars but affected water service to the surrounding neighborhoods. And, out of the five fires you had, why did you rack up $200,000 in overtime. Oh, you were chasing Med-Care ambulances, blocking traffic, and really not helping them at all because they never asked for your help to begin with. That would be a redundancy in services. Oh, you don't have paramedics so you can't really do anything anyways, ok? Well I guess we can cut $100,000 grand from your budget that reflects all the overtime you rack up from chasing ambulances because the overtime is not coming from fighting fires in Rumford. Oh and how are you utilizing the funds in the Emergency Management budget? Oh, you have a plan somewhere. Are you going to share it with the rest of us which is required by the National Incident Management System (NIMS)? Oh, you don't really know what Emergency Management is? Have you trained with Oxford County Emergency Management Agency to ensure that if we have a chemical spill or some other hazardous situation that you know how to handle it and evacuate our citizens in an orderly fashion to protect them from the plume that comes from the chemical? Oh, you don't. Maybe you should start dusting off that plan, make some updates, share it with the community so we are all on the same page, and then do some exercises so you can improve your response times and efforts if we do in fact have an incident."
Since when has Jennifer Stowell Norris been appointed spokesperson for the Finance Committee? She is as unprofessional as she accuses so many others of being. She should not be representing this town. How can we ever imagine healing the wounds in this town when she has so arrogantly and presumptuously placed her own throne before the podium?

It is my understanding that Med-Care fully supported Rumford Fire responding to EMS calls. I also understand that Med-Care helped with the training for Rumford Fire so they could respond with them. Maybe she should find out. She is, after all, an alternate for the Board of Directors of Med-Care. It also seems that she has appointed herself as spokesperson for that, too.

In order for a first responder service to exist, the ambulance service must "sponsor" them. This does not mean that they provided funding, but they did have to approve the service and provided assistance to Rumford Fire in establishing and maintaining the service and the EMS certification of the members.
