Sierra : Since you are so critical about a variety of things, if I might I will criticize your spelling acumen.

Curious as to why sierra thinks it is paid for by Lawrence taxpayers. I know from personal experience that the patient and/or his insurance company is charged. Is Lawrence required to pay for it if is not otherwise paid?

Maybe because our local ambulance service is jointly owned by the City of Lawrence and Douglas County. Thus the name Lawrence Douglas County Fire and Med.

I was not aware that the city had an air ambulance, I thought they came from neighboring cities.

So was this one of the resident homeless?

If this individual was in some way behaving badly, perhaps drunk and urinating in public, or cussing at passersby, or somehow creating a disturbance, your question might have some relevance. However, having been described simply as injured and in critical condition, I fail to see how your question has merit.

Do you have a point to make or are you simply curious about the individual's income level?

What a bunch of malicious remarks. I hope the guy is ok. I wish him and his family the best.
