Repeal the ban on trained EMS personell from carrying weapons
I am fully in support of allowing trained EMS personell to carry firearms while on OR off duty for their protection, and the protection of their patients and co-workers.
It is fact that police are either not called to the scene, or arrive sometime after the EMS personell, which has, and very may well again, put their lives in danger.
I urge you to repeal the ban on EMS personell carrying weapons on their person,and in their vehicle, and to make sure they get proper training to use such.
