Well a sad day has come... My volunteer rescue squad has been shut down by the County I live in becasue of political greedy people that care nothiing about the community but only about themselves. They actually pushed out all the volunteers in our county. It breaks my heart because when I moved to NC 5 years ago it was the first thing that I joined. It was the first fellowship I have ever belonged to. I recieved my EMT certificate and went out and saved some lives, helped those that were sick or injured. I was a volunteer and did everything for free! I didnt ask to be paid. I got up in the middle of the night and went to little old granny's house because she felt out of bed and just needed a hand up.
After 5 years things had been slipping out from below us at my rescue squad. The members became fewer and fewer, the President just didnt care and it brough us all down. The county was busting out chops for something or another. And then all there was left was 2 active members, 1 member who lost his cert, and old lifetime members with a rescue building 2 ambulances and no calls to be answer because it would unlawful for us to do so now.
I thought I had done everything that i could think of to try to save my squad, but I failed. Maybe one day I will try once again to rebuild my squad and it will be a sucess.
