  6. Old Business:
  7. Ambulance Pricing
    Ron Moring from Sugarloaf Ambulance quoted a 2001 ambulance at costing the service $15,000.
    There are possible leads on ambulances being sold locally. Katelyn will ask Margaret about SWH’s plans to upgrade.
    Cory Duggan has been speaking with Ted Carroll from a large EMS service in Massachusetts. He has connections with Islesford and he has offered to put the service on a donation list for when this large service upgrades their rigs. The ambulance would have very high mileage, but the service does not see this as an issue.
    Cory Duggan is asked to contact Mr. Carroll again to let him know we are definitely interested in being put on a donation/ inexpensive sale list.

    Katelyn asks anyone who has not done so, to please let Denise take a copy of your license for town vehicle insurance records.

  12. Other Business:
  13. Baltimore- The service briefly discusses the opotrunity to travel to Baltimore to do a ride along on an ambulance there and to visit the Baltimore Shock Trauma hospital.
    Cory Duggan raises the question of National Registry and how this will play a role as service members have not kept up with this certification. It does not affect Maine Licensure; but could possibly affect any opportunity to travel outside of Maine and practice.
    Katelyn says that she will look into the National Registry again. She has previously tried to keep things going with this certification, but ended up abandoning efforts as it proved difficult to contact the National Registry to figure out computer issues, along with the fact that the re-licensure requirements were almost double that of Maine’s in less time.
