I happened across this scene this afternoon -- four of the city ambulances sitting next to the fire hall on Evans -- out of service.

They will be sold (except the newest one). They're a little big for my "mobile newsroom" needs. I have this fantasy of getting a PT Cruiser. It's just a fantasy ...

That is a heartbreaking sight for those of us who logged thousands of miles in those vehicles. It represents a sad ending to a career we medics were very passionate about.

The ambulances above seem larger and more equipt. Lori, thank you for your dedicated service. I hope you still have a job with Mercy Flight. It is a sad sight to see all these, state of the art ambulances, sold for peanuts compared to what was payed for them, and what they are worth.

Please,Ms.Santini do you need some cheese with that whine? Its part of life, we people lose our jobs.Put yourself in my shoes! I'm a teamster truck driver, I drive locally in Buffalo and Rochester. I'm on lay-off status."on-call"I don't when I'll be called in ?,it's day to day. Anyway it's my worst year ever, are you ready for this! I made six thousand this year plus unemployment. I lost year to date about 30,000 dollars, and lost my health insurance I have to payout of pocket for that.We also had to take a fifteen percent pay cut and no pension credit for 18 months. And you think you have it bad! My advice to you,Bite the bullet, things might get better sooner or later.Please enough!!!
