HUBBARDSTON, Mass. — Fire Chief Seth A. Knipe said he takes full responsibility for problems that occurred in billing for the Fire Department ambulance service, but believes the problem could have been handled without a police investigation.
"I'm not hiding behind anything," he said. "As chief, the buck stops here. I just would have liked to have the opportunity to fix the issue."
