Bogota First Aid Squad Bogota New Jersey started this petition to Bogota Mayor Kelemen and Bogota Borough Council

The Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad has served the community since 1947. Recent action by the Bogota Mayor and Council will lead to the Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad being disbanded as of July 1, 2016.

With this action, the Bogota Mayor and Council have agreed that residents will be BILLED by a private ambulance service for all ambulance services in the future.

The Mayor and Council have secretly taken this action and have not included representatives from the Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad in any discussions or meetings.  We have come to find out that the Bogota Mayor and Council have been planning this action for MONTHS without any discussion with representatives from the Squad.  

We are asking that the Bogota Mayor and Council delay this action and work with representatives of the Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad to collectively and cooperatively find solutions that are beneficial and financially acceptable for the community.  

Please support the Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad by signing this petition asking that the Bogota Mayor and Council delay their contract with a private ambulance service and save the Bogota Volunteer First Aid Squad which has provided ambulance services to the residents of Bogota at no-cost since 1947.

Thank you for your support.
