PETITION TO KEEP EMS CIVIL SERVICE

Apparently, some nimrod/s have gone or been going to Dr. Stephens (the man who could give two sh**s less about us) and requesting to be back under the Health Dept. . For those of you who don't already know this....Dr. Stephens has and will sell us out in a heartbeat. This could MURDER us, and EMS being civil service will be a thing of the past.

So what should we do to fix this problem? To start, it wouldn't be a bad idea for all of us to fix what some people started by Emailing Dr. Saussy our concerns and requests regarding our desire to be and stay civil service under the Department of Homeland Security.

This not only shows Dr. Saussy our support for her and our service, but it will also provide black and white proof to show certain City Hall workers, if need be.

Please, spread the word to those who do not check this blog, and remember, THE MORE WE STICK TOGETHER, THE STRONGER WE WILL BE.

Good post Susan! I couldnt agree more. We are a family and we need to stick together. A united front is all that will get us through this hump. Everyone should take an active roll in keeping us from becoming a private entity.

You forgot one thing, when acadian takes over they will not need any of you, so instead of worrying about being with dhs or health dept you better worry about just keeping your job first

Thanks a bunch, SUSAN

I wonder why our anonyninny said WHEN and not IF Acadian takes over. I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't hire people if they were to take over seeing as they are having to pay people 10k just to paramedics to work for them. I think it's more of a matter of who would WANT to work for them, not a worry about people keeping thier jobs here. If you want to work for Acadian that bad then please by all means put in your resignation and get your 10k. I for one am proud to work for New Orleans EMS and would like to continue to be a part of NEW ORLEANS EMS. For those few people who are not happy here, stop trying to spoil it for the rest of us who come to work and do our jobs and love this place!

I feel just about the way you guys do if that person wants to wear green so bad go get the job. I for one have been through 4 administrations’ and this is getting OLD... I want my job and have always wanted to be in the REAL EMS not a service that buys up what and who they can. If we do not stick together on this one we will lose. If that should happen I for one will be looking for another job. We need to rally together and made ourselves hear by people who will listen. Mark is not going to keep quite on this one and he is telling anyone who will listen why he is leaving. We need to be under DHS so that we can keep growing the way we have been with all the new additions that we have been adding i.e.: Swat Medics, swift water rescue and special extraction rescue. If anyone has any connections with someone who can write up a form that we can get OK'ed (by Jullette or who the powers maybe) to stop the Mayor from selling us out. I would sign it and I am sure there are A LOT of other that would too. I am not afraid to sign my name either.

The ones who will suffer if acadian takes over are the citizens of new orleans NO ONE can run this city like WE can, NO ONE knows this city like WE do,NO ONE has the emergency experience like WE do, and NO ONE can put up the the SHIT from the citizens of NOLA like WE can/do! I for one will NEVER be green....
