To The Daily Sun,
I am writing this to express my very deep concern for the possibility of changes in staffing at the Laconia Fire Department should a private company take over the ambulance function for the city. Although I am not a resident of Laconia, for many years I worked at LRGHealthcare as the vice president of Clinical Services and the Chief Nursing Office. Emergency Services, both at Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital as well as the emergency services in this community were areas for which I was responsible. Consequently, I knew them well because I took the time to learn from the people who did the hands-on work. The standards of practice are exceptional in the Laconia EMS program and Laconia citizens should be proud of the truly dedicated service provided by these professionals. There are a number of paramedics and EMTs that are trained not only in medical response, but are also trained as firefighters. So they are able to adjust responses needed in the community based on true community need.
