[ARCHIVED] House Amendment for Supplemental Oems Funds


The House budget has come out and there is a lack of funding in the OEMS Line Item again this year.  On the behalf of the Western Mass Emergency Medical Services, my local Representative, Tricia Farley-Bouvier, is filing an amendment to add $100,000 to their budget to ensure that our First Responders, EMTs and Paramedics get the training, technical assistance and communications necessary for them to perform well in the field.

Please contact your local Representative and ask them to either co-sponsor or support her amendment.

Thanks for your attention and consideration in this matter.

Bob Czerwinski, Fire Chief

City of Pittsfield
