How many people in Cedar Rapids actually know there is a private Ambulance Service that has nothing to do with CRFD? When a Paramedic saves your life, who do you thank first? Oh yeah... the "Fire Fighters". I guess we're just Ambulance Drivers.

First of all... When the ONLY ambulance service in CR doesnt't get recognized for ANYTHING do in CR is pretty sad. Second of all... I was volunteer FF/EMT for nine years, so dont try and act cool people. And CRFD is 'NOT' an ambulance service!!!

I don't normal post but one of the badge's does say fire and rescue and in most Iowa towns that means the EMS too. Lighten up. I know you all work hard and you did a great job getting all the people out just be glad they are saying thank you.

You people are ridiculous! Just be thankful there are people out there thanking someone. Get over yourself and enjoy the fact your actions helped someone who unconditionally appreciated it. PhotoDude - thank you.

It's sad a medic would get so upset over some thing like this. Be thankful someone is out there appreciating the things we do as heath care providers, fire or military. HAVE A HEART, don't think of just your self. Medic got paid, where others did not

How can a medic say these horrible things? I am a first responder and I dedicated my time for my town let alone Johnson County. (NEVER GOT PAID!) I know what I did was a good thing and I don't need to come on this website and ask others for praise.

Im not sure who makes these kinds of pictures. But you better start thinking about ALL the Emergency services in Cedar Rapids!
Medic says ... on Wednesday, Jun 18 at 1:41 PM
Ok.... How bout us that work for the ONLY ambulance service that serves CR and parts of surronding Linn and Johnson County???? Too bad WE never get thanked for ANYTHING! AND.... When we avacuated Mercy Medical Center, who got the thanks for that?
