Cadiz Fails To Pass Ambulance District


CADIZ – The Silver Spade Ambulance District Hopedale Fire Chief, Mark Marchetta has been trying to establish for the past year now, has failed.

  1. All I have to say is that if any of my family members here in Cadiz suffer ANY negative effects from this vote to not provide Paramedic level EMS services in Cadiz I WILL sue the current Village Council, corporately AND personally, AND the Village Fire Department for putting their petty “Cadiz first” attitude over providing a level of pre-hospital care that is needed here…
    And… I just have to say… I’m a 40+ year retired fire-fighter/Paramedic from the Outer Banks of NC who, frankly, knows a thing or two about this issue.
