PLEASE TELL ME IT ISN’T SO… SOME VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT

Joe, Hearing some scuddle butt that those WSFD members who work for Hamilton EMS part-time staffing the ambulance in White Springs on the weekends are being paid by Hamilton EMS and also being paid the $100 per day by White Springs FD as volunteers at the same time thus double-dipping on salary. Don’t know if it is true but a 119 request for a schedule and pay records from Hamilton EMS and from White Springs FD would certainly answer the question. We know that Steve is claiming a WSFD response when one of his volunteers is working on the ambulance and responds to a med call in White Springs. Just food for thought.

  1. Well first there are two full time positions for EMS created by the truck in White Springs filled by two people who reside in Hamilton County, one actually close to White Springs.

    Second I can tell you that it isn’t so. No EMS employee is getting paid to run Fire while on the EMS clock. We are there to serve the citizens in an EMS capacity and can only financially do that thanks to the town letting us post in their station. Yes some EMS folks are members of the Fire Department and all of us will lend a hand but when they are on EMS time that is their mission and that is what they do. No EMS employee is double dipping.
