Just wanted to put this out there. Do not let the employees persuade you to go to a hospital that you don't want to go to. Do not let them tell you that your insurance will not pay unless you go to the nearest hospital. 99% of insurances will cover you going to the "closest appropriate facility". I recently talked to a paramedic from another county and found out that these employes will blatantly lie to you! If you are having chest pain and want to go to your cardiologist or want to go to a facility that offers cardiac services they have to take you!. If your arm is broken and you want to go to a facility that offers orthopedic care then they have to take you and your insurance WILL pay. Do not let these employees lie to you just so they can get back to the couch quicker!

I can't believe you would believe that an employee at the EMS would be anything but honest and hard working. After all the director (Marty Gipson) is one of the most top notch County employees around. If you want an Paramedic call the Sheriff Department and if you want a Detective call EMS. Marty Gipson will be your guy. If you can't find him at either place call Clint Walker he could tell you where he is. I can only think that you would get top of the line care from Marty no matter what your need is. Just don't listen to the sexual comments he may have while he's transporting you to the facility of HIS choice. When is the county going to get sick of this. They need to make change.

The paramedic I talked to has been in EMS for over 15 years and it is the "closest appropriate facility". IF you or your family member has a stroke or a broken arm or chest pain why wouldn't they take them to a hospital that can actually do something for that problem?? Especially when you can get them to a hospital that can treat them indefinitely in 10-15 more minutes!! And as far as the employees at seq county ems, they are at the bottom of the barrel. I've checked! They are the only class B service around as far as I know and they're workers extend from they're director. Lead by example is lacking there obviously!

I'm not sure about what hospital they take you to but I would think they would take you to the best suitable facility. It's sad that our little county had to settle for less than best. But addressing the Director and his employees needs to move to the top of the counties priority. I still can't calculate how the director can hold 2 county jobs and be second rate. Meaning his work ethic and quality is piss pour and yet he still keeps doing it. What does he have on the decision makers of this county? He is a crook and an embarrassment. He is a harasser of women and a scammer of county tax money.

Our citizens need to know that our money is paying this embarrassment of a director for 2 full time positions with our county dollars/taxes! Is Keith Cartwright not gonna do something about this I know of many people that only voted for him bc he said he would do something about this situation particularly. And isn't this employee on the pay list for a medic at the jail? I am confused who died and made him God?

When Erlanger opens North valley I hope they bring in there own EMS. At least we will get some experienced Paramedics and Emt's instead of wanna bes.

I think they do the best they can atleast we have a ambulance service and if they shut them down when erlanger comes in and takes over if they take over the ambulance service we might get worse ambulance service they wont know where everything is where any of the roads are it will take them longer to get to you if you need them real fast so people just shut the (FUCK UP) about the SEQUATCHIE COUNTY EMS and i really think Marty is doing the best he can with the budget he gets

Where have you been the ambulance crew now can't find there way around Dunlap.So I don't think we will have any problems with a whole new crew from Chattanooga.At least they will be professional and know what the he%% is going on unlike some of the ones we have now that use the ambulance as party pad.
what a joke

in order to hold two county jobs he must be "top rate?" Do you even live in sequatchie county? he is anything but top rate. He is the bottom of the barrell. maybe you should check into these things before posting on here but I would guess that you haven't heard that just a few months ago he was suspended from the sheriffs department for sexually harrassing a coworker's wife...
Also when approached by a doctor at a nearby hospital who was filing a complaint against one of our wonderful emts, he was completly unprofessional and did nothing to address the matter. Time to hire someone else

Hey "Just ME" I dont think Marty wants any help form you in that department right now. A Video of him and Clint grabing Gina on the butt and then sexually harrassing a coworker's wife THREE times. At least know he is on the clock and the countyssome of there money from him. He and Clint have taken more time off and been paid for it than they have worked. As for this week alone Clint hasent even been to work and will collect $17.00 an hour for every minute of that time as he has for the Thousands of hours he has ripped the county off of. For all you Marty and Clint lovers PULL YOUR HEADS OUT. They are the real criminals. Marty has spun a very different account of why he was demoted than what happened. Just ask us, we WORK where he SITS on his lieing A_s and will tell you the real story.

No i dont work there but i do know my business!And from a couple of post before you better ck into the County payroll bc Marty does work at the Sheriffs dept he got demoted to shift sergeant and got a car to drive and he is still the director of EMS !! This county needs to do something they are stealing us blind plus committing adultery while on the job!! And they Arrest people for doing wrong that's a damn JOKE!!

I agree with you 100% no one has any respect for most of the officers because they are doing more wrong than the people they arrest then laugh and joke about others.They make jokes about there own boss the sheriff cause he doesnt catch on to what they are doing.It is a shame we have officers out that talk to people like dogs and get by with it cause the sheriff dont want to hear any complaints but behind his back they dog him like trash the same people he takes up for we need to replace the entire sheriffs office so Sequatchie county can stop being the laughing stock of the valley.

My take on the Ems is they are so full of sh#t with Marty leading them they are all corrupt.We need to replace them along with Sheriffs dept.When they cant go to call cause they are out partying we have a problem.
