Mo. medics: 'We aren't getting paid'

The rural ambulance service owes employees four paychecks; one EMT says company should "throw in the towel"

WINDSOR, Mo. — A strapped rural ambulance service is two months behind in issuing paychecks as it creeps towards solvency.

The Windsor Ambulance District has been bleeding money for years. Some people in town have been desperate to save it. But one of its EMTs says it's time to throw in the towel. "The money comes from fees for service and property taxes. We don't have a Walmart here that they can get a sales tax against," said EMT Mark Lindsay.

Lindsay lives in the town of 3,000 people and had spent 14 years with the ambulance district, which services people in town and a broad swath of rural area outside of the small town. Like the nine other EMS employees, he's four paychecks, or two months, behind.
