    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Hello all saw a AMR ambulance in Roseburg on Saturday. Not really near I-5, actually driving city streets. I thought that Roseburg was under contract by Douglas CO Fire Dist. 2. Any one shed some light? Thanks for the help.

Probably down there dropping off a patient. Could have either come from Portland or Grants Pass. Since the VA is down there, a lot of patients get transferred there for long term care. That is my thinking.

AMR does not have any contract in Douglas County.

AMR in Roseburg

AMR has long had a desire to operate in Douglas County. I know that I am definitely not alone in my wish to see that happen. They are a highly capable, very professional company and do not cost the taxpayers one red cent. We now have a tax-funded fire district ambulance service (Douglas County Fire District 2) in place in most of the county. It would make so much more sense to have a tax-paying business, such as AMR... a company which is beholden to no politician(s)...at the helm of our county’s medical transportation industry. I hope it happens soon.
