Bangs Ambulance is committed to customer service as you can see by our Mission Statement. Customer service really means community service and we extend that philosophy well beyond those in need of emergency medical services or medical transport. We believe tha... more.
If surrounding municipalities have lower fee schedules than Bangs, we should go with the municipal fee schedules."
She said multiple members of the Ulysses board are concerned not only with the fee schedule, but with creating a policy for low-income families who can't afford to pay, and with having a say in creating regulations governing how aggressively to bill residents. Tim Bangs, owner of Bangs Ambulance, said even though he charges a certain rate for ambulance service, he often doesn't receive most of that money.
Tim Bangs, president and owner of Bangs Ambulance, said they've dealt with road closures in the past."It obviously takes a little bit longer, but traffic backups happen from time to time and we know how to deal with them," he said.They're also used to taking alternate routes, he added.Road closures, Bangs said, are similar to delays created by weather or passing trains."The crews plan on it and treat the patients accordingly," he said."Most of the initial emergency treatment can be done in the ambulance, and the crews are trained to do that."In the long run, getting the road fixed will be good for their patients, he added."Hitting those potholes makes patients uncomfortable, so if it takes 6-8 weeks to fix the road, we'll deal with it," he said.
Timothy Bangs of Bangs Ambulance Service and Craig Wilkins of WCHU Radio Broadcasting presented a "Distinguished Citizen Award" to Michael Trunkes, Craig Beierle, and Judy Rosen for their quick actions during a recent incident during which Francis Russell, a patron of the Boat Yard Grill, was choking.
