American Ambulance is focused on its mission of caring for people; meaning all people within the diverse communities we serve. We are a service organization and generally don’t make political statements. However, attempting to be apolitical while our community suffers is not working. As Howard Zinn said, "You can't be neutral on a moving train."

We want to be clear that American Ambulance stands with the Black community and others who oppose racial injustices. We must oppose the systemic racism that permeates our society and is responsible for the deaths of people like George Floyd, a single individual representing many, many more. The systemic inequalities our community experiences are pervasive and affect all of us.

I have had several honest conversations with Black employees to listen to their feelings, get their perspective on recent events, and learn how we can better support them and the Black community. While I will never fully understand the struggles faced by Black Americans, it’s clear we all need to be committed to change – not with just words, but with meaningful action within our company and the community.

We take pride in having a diverse workforce, but we have much more work to do. We commit to working with leaders in the Black Community to identify employee candidates and offering scholarships and job opportunities as a means to further increase our company’s diversity and better integrate with our community. We will also use our platform as an industry leader to support local Black American groups toward their goals of inclusion and racial equality. We have been members of the Black and Hispanic chambers of commerce for years but should be more actively involved. We will become actively engaged to support these organizations. I know this is not enough, but these will be steps in the right direction.

Finally, for those who are fighting for change, to those suffering from the poison of racism, to our employees, and especially the Black community: You are not alone. American Ambulance stands with you - you have my word on that. Until change happens to address these deep inequities in our society, we will never truly be the community we strive to be.

Thank you for all you do to help keep our communities safe and prepared. I was hoping you could pass on some information to the citizens in your jurisdiction. There is a free Emergency Management/Preparedness app on the App Store. Its called the Emergency Ready App and can be downloaded for free at https://emergencyreadyapp.com/. It’s a great tool that allows people to customize their specific emergency kits and emergency response plans so they can prepare for the unforeseen. It also comes with built in features like preloaded emergency kit tools and plans. I thought this may be an excellent tool to share on your social media sites. Thanks again for all you do.
How nice to see American was able to avoid the clutches of AMR. I started with American shortly after you opened. I had been working for San Luis 5 Cities in San Luis Obispo. I applied at Jones, but they had no openings but they said they had no openings but there was a "flash in the pan" operation that just opened up I could try. I worked there until 1979 when I took an administrative position at Fresno Care and Guidance Center. I remember the 4 original owners well. I also remember using our lifepak 4's. I think they used car batteries and they had acoustic modems. Good luck and fortune. I really enjoyed working there.
Does anyone know when the bidding schedule comes out?
My brother fell and broke his hip today. He has Alzheimer's and I worry when he has to go on an ambulance that his family is not there to make sure he is ok. American pulled up out front and I see this guy with a mask and I'm thinking even with the mask I'm pretty sure that's Hal Fielding. Worked a lot of shifts withy Hal at M-7 way back in the day. I told Jim this guy is one of the best. Hal handled him with kid gloves. Thanks Hal. Didn't catch his partner's name but thank you to partner.
Savemart's post : We are very proud and thankful for our first responders and starting today law enforcement, medical and fire personnel will have the opportunity to shop at all our stores one hour before and one hour after posted store hours -everyday. FYI to your employees.
Thank you for all that you do! Love, Makinley Myers (age 8)
