Save MAST!

I have to admit, I was wondering where we were at with the possible city take over of the ambulance service MAST. And there is TKC fearlessly supplying the answer! (Yes, that is a shameless plug.) This is more than a passing issue to me. As an RN in the ER, what happens out in the field is very important to me; it might make the difference between receiving a live patient in the ER verses receiving a dead one. I think very highly of the service MAST gives, and have been very impressed at the high level of care that is given, often under very difficult conditions.

The most important thing I want to get across to everyone is this:

Local physicians, MAST employees, community leaders, local politicians and petition organizers will be on hand gathering 4300 signatures of registered Kansas City voters required to put the issue on the ballot in February and providing more information about the MAST takeover at the Southeast Community Center located in the Multi-purpose Conference Room at 4201 E. 63rd St. Kansas City, MO 64130 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Friday, August 21, 2009. Light Refreshments will be served. Space is very limited.

Go and sign the petition, Kansas City voters!
