Rescue Company trying to obtain an engine
I have a few questions.
This may seem like a shot in the dark, and I am not going to bad mouth anyone.
I work for a Rescue Company ( EMS and Rescue Services) , and we have.... lets say issues with the local FD. I'm sure this is common in a lot of hybrid areas.
The issue that I am in need of advise is that i feel unsafe when they are there. We have always tried to play nice with them, but no matter how many times we extend the olive branch, we basically get it throw back at us. I feel that they are going to be the cause for a LODD or a patients injury/death. On rescue scenes , they are constantly doing unsafe things, and couldn't care of the services that we provide.
My question is, we can afford an engine , and all of us are FF for years with other organizations. But , we don't receive any tax money, so in order to justify the cost , I have to see how we can bill for our services.
I'm sure we wouldn't bill people, just insurance companies. What can you bill for, and how much?
Im sure that this will get flamed for many reasons , but I am reaching out.
