If Athol is to continue ambulance service, it is clear that more personnel is required.

Everyone involved in making the decisions to keep Athol functional as a good place to live has done their utmost to mitigate this personnel shortage. The budget does a good job of giving the town the services we want at the lowest cost.

Those of us involved, the town manager, fire chief, various committees and the paramedics and EMTs who do the work, need your help to continue this service.

An increase in staffing will provide minimum staffing and the individuals who do the work a more reasonable work week.

I have been aware of this shortage for many years, and all those who have worked diligently to resolve this issue cannot do it without the funding.
