Green Brook EMS May Be Outsourced
Green brook residents and businesses, Green Brook EMS needs your help. Please come to town hall on Monday night at 7:30 to voice your opinion.
Your mayor, township administrator and council have decided that having an all volunteer squad is costing the tax payers too much money. They are in the process of researching outsourcing this service to paid services under the guise of saving you, the taxpayer, money. The few cents on the dollar that gets allocated to emergency services will NOT make a dent in your tax bill. On top of this the service that once cost you nothing extra could now end up costing you upwards of $600. On top of this, it very possible that these paid services will not cover community events. If they do there will most likely be a fee involved.
Our squad is made up of 30 very dedicated volunteers. We get up in the middle of the night because we have a desire to help our neighbors. We do this for free. We do not get paid. As volunteers we put in an excess of 70 hours a month of our own time. We miss holiday dinners with our families, we have lost our own houses to floods while saving and assisting our neighbors. Again we do this because we have a desire to help our residents not because we have to. All we are asking for is your help to keep our doors open.
Please come out to town hall on Monday night @ 7:30 to let your mayor and council members know that you want to keep your volunteer EMS. This is the one time that we really need your assistance. Without your support we won’t be able to keep our doors open!!! Please come out Monday night!
