    OP, let me clarify the question:

    Paid Professional or Volunteer Professional? :rolleyes:

    BTW, nice rigs. I'll take two in white with gold, black, and red trim.

    It is all volunteer. That striping is unique, no one else in the area has the same kind.

    Without getting into another pointless volunteer debate... no. I have been both paid and volunteer (sometimes both at the same time) and, while acknowledging that some volunteers are unproffesional, automaticly calling all volunteers unproffesional is wrong and an attack on those who make the sacrifice to volunteer their time to help others. I have and use the same certifications as a volunteer that I do when paid... and I am always professional! :)

    You're starting an argument where none previously existed. Nobody called anyone unprofessional. And not being "a professional" does not mean you are unprofessional. Please spare us yet another pointless semantic argument.

    Let’s review…

    As if you have to choose. You can’t be both?

    But as I said:

    So, I will…

    Something I had no intention of, but was just clarifying an earlier statement that carried an obviously bigoted "Volunteers are not professional enough for some" thought (intentional or not). Whatever…

    You can be. However, we're not here to discuss what you can be. We're specifically discussing the organization presented by the OP. And he already told us that they are "all volunteer". He was perfectly clear with that reply, and we don't need your bigoted and argumentative interpretation.

    Nobody said anything of the sort, except for you. Why are you intent on starting the same old argument here?

    Cool! Who makes those ambulances that you have in service now? Unique look to the box.

    Yeah, you can tell by the arched roofs.

    Do they have the sliding side doors, or the traditional swing doors?
