Last year a paid EMT who chose to serve regardless of receiving no pay, told Thurman EMS members he was donating his time and talents “because these are our friends and neighbors.” This really affected me, and I volunteered to serve as Treasurer.
Thurman EMS is a dedicated, hard working group that has struggled to the end to serve the public.
I know we have the support of the residents, and I cannot comprehend the official town’s lack of support. Without it, Thurman EMS has reached the end.
We are hoping for a miracle on Feb. 12 — some level and source of funding that will allow Thurman EMS to keep operating. If not, dissolution papers will be filled out and Thurman EMS will cease to exist.
There are many rumors circulating regarding the squad. I encourage you to conduct your own fact-finding. I will show you our financial records if you have questions. Feel free to call squad officials and ask with any questions you may have — and then you will obtain an accurate picture of what has happened and not rely on false print.
Treasurer, Thurman EMS
