Barre's Storied EMS Service Demoted ... the New BEARS Have Already Expired

Barre's Storied EMS Service Demoted ... the New BEARS Have Already Expired

What's taking place in Wonderland's dark hole? It's a secret, Outsiders. But by the smell of it - something's died.

The Barre Emergency Rescue Squad Inc. has officially been humiliated - and soon perhaps worse.

And MA Department of Public Heath doesn't even recognize the very name its Office of Emergency Medical Services assigned to this "new" provider, Barre Ambulance Service.

Nope.

The Mother Ship calls it the Barre EMS, the former dba for the Barre Emergency Rescue Squad Inc.

Doesn't it all make perfect sense, Outsiders?!

The good „ol days in Wonderland.
 The BEARS
hangin‟ out in their
den at 10 Broad Street. Their flag proudly pinned above the ambulance bays for all passersby to see. Not anymore. Long ago it was removed
 but never a word was spoken. In 2013 the Director of the Office of
Emergency Medical Services even wrote how the
Barre Emergency & Rescue Squad is not a licensed entity by OEMS
”.
 Blasphemy! 41 years in operation as a (very) private, nonprofit EMS service and suddenly the MA Department of Public Health had cast away this 501©3 like some dilapidated ambulance not worthy of being saved. But alas, Outsiders. It appears even misfit nonprofits have a place in the Commonwealth.
 
According to public records on file with MA DPH, the Emergency & Rescue Squad is now a licensed CE Provider. Translation. The BEARS is out of the ambulance business and it now can only legally provide continuing education training. This quiet transformation took effect on December 1, 2013. Question. Has the BEARS re-filed
with the IRS given this dramatic change in their ”charitable”
purpose? Question. Has the Board of Directors been dissolved since money no longer matters?
Question. Are EMT‟s on the former BEARS free to roam since the Board no longer controls
them and Wonderland has yet to approve a new business structure, job descriptions, etc.?
 
Which brings me to this point. MA DPH recognizes a
Barre EMS
 (you know, Outsiders, the dba of the Barre Emergency & Rescue Squad according to
“Acting” EMS Director Charles Fulla
m),
not
 a
Town of Barre Ambulance Service
.
And the Barre EMS‟s license has
supposedly expired.
