COFFEE COUNTY: RSN posted a article concerning Coffee County EMS not mutual aid requesting Enterprise Rescue to a recent mass casualty motor vehicle accident.
Haynes Ambulance apparently hired a law firm in Montgomery to threaten RSN about correcting it's article.
RSN strives to have articles correct. If anything was stated wrong we want to and will correct it. We responded to the attorney to (1) correct their email address for corresponding to RickeyStokesNews (2) provide a copy of the contract with Coffee County Commission/Coffee County EMS/City of Elba. This was to verify what is stated in the attorney's correspondence.
To date there has been no response from the attorney. So today we again corresponded with them VIA EMAIL requesting the documents. However through our investigation we have uncovered potential other information and requesting truthful and factual statements from Haynes through their attorney.
The attorney threatened seeking " consider appropriate legal action ". I assume that means filing a lawsuit against RSN. I offered to pay the filing fee for them to file a lawsuit. Because that would give RSN the authority to subpoena documents and to take depositions. And there are some documents I want and can not get without subpoena power. There are also some questions of which I would like asked and answered, under oath and the criminal penalties of perjury. So the lawsuit would give me that opportunity to subpoena things and seek information through the legal depositions. And they would be published and/or livestreamed. And they can ask me whatever they want.
With all of that said, RSN has the thought process of emergency services that others must not. And that thought process is...the goal of emergency services is to save lives and property. Those mandates to save lives and property are not territorial but the nearest and most efficient method possible in order to save lives and property. The emergency providers should never worry about who gets credit, just save the life and provide top quality medical treatment.
The goal of my article, of which those in charge have missed, if the attitude of the powers to be are "We do not like them so we are not going to call them", that is wrong. The incident in question was a mass casualty incident. The patient is what counts not attitudes or power struggles.
So quit shooting the messenger and READ CAREFULLY THE MESSAGE... if the message sent by whomever was not to mutual aid assist request the nearest qualified agency, that is not acceptable. And the intent of the article was to cast light and get that changed. Because the next mass casualty incident could be me or you.
