Ed made a motion to approve the Mountain Mercantile vouchers; seconded by Paul M. Kevin abstains and disclosed that he is part owner of Mountain Mercantile. Motion carries.


Tommy called for public comment. Paul M. stated that PFD responds when there is an accident. Do they respond as first responders and then step back when EMTs arrive? Yes. PFD usually arrives before the ambulance, and there has been a complaint about who is in charge. It is a shared responsibility, depending upon the situation. Kerry feels the relationship between the PFD and ambulance is great. Paul M. stated that it is good to have the man power there to lift the gurney as some of the EMTs we have may not be physically able to lift them. There are very few EMTs and many times PFD has had to drive the ambulance as there is only one EMT present.


There being no further business for the Board to attend to, Tommy adjourns the meeting at 11:00 a.m.
