Whatever, you choose, please have a safe and happy new year's eve. Speaking of, please take a minute and read up on the proposed change in Ambulance Contract from Jersey City Medical Center to CarePoint/McCabe. A couple of months ago, when I saw JCMC EMTs with a petition at the Bagel shop, I didn't thin much of it. But the more I hear,the more against I am having the for-profit CarePoint/McCabe take over. please help save our EMS.
Be on the look out for a newly designed Rock-it Docket for 2014, along with all the good things that an official information source should have like advertising, I can do this for free anymore JC.
