Operators of ambulance service hope to make a run at success By DAVID BEVENS Staff Writer A Salina emergency medical technician and his spouse started a non- emergency ambulance service in Salina because of a need of such a service. Tom Shuler, who quit his job in the middle of March as an EMT with the Salina Fire Departmen, and his wife Havana, who has been a homemaker for five years, started "Helping Hand" ambulance service March 23. "I'm not trying to run a competition," said Tom Shuler. "I am trying to provide a service." Havana Shuler said she is interested in being a part of a transfer service because of her love for the elderly, who make up much of the services clientele. "I really get an excitement out of talking to them," she said. "We are starting to realize that older people aren't something to throw in the trash. They have their needs and we should fulfill them." The Shulers received a Type 4 license from the state that allows them to make "non-emergency transfers." The transfers involve people who need a person trained in medical assistance while being transported to and from care facilities. Before "Helping Hand" started, the Salina Fire Department was the only service in Sailna that was licensed to make such transfers. Joe Knott, captain with the Salina Fire Department, said that the department made 325 routine transfers last year. Shuler said he bought his ambulance from an ambulance service in Kansas and removed the flashing lights as required by the Type 4 license. Except for lights, which are missing, the ambulance is fully equipped, he said. Because Havana is not an EMT, she will drive the ambulance and Shuler will attend the person being transported, he said. Shuler thinks his service will help the fire department. Tom and Havana Shuler Craig Chandler Knott agrees. "It will probably be a help in the long run," he said. Knott said that once in a while, a routine transfer conflicts with emergency calls. In such cases, the emergency has first priority, he said. Shuler also said the service would be valuable to small towns that have only one ambulance. If an ambulance from a one-ambulance town is transferring a person and an emergency call comes in, often times an ambulance from a nearby town has to make the run, he said. Another benefit to having an optional service is cost, Shuler said. Shuler will make an in-town transfer for $80. The city charges $100 for the same service. Discounts are offered to those who call 24 hours before and pay at the time of service, he said. The savings on an out-of-town transfers is the biggest difference in costs between his service and the city service, he said. Shuler charges $80 as a base rate; the city charges a base of $250 for an out-of-town transfer, he said. A solution with kids: surrender Dear Heloise: My kids really had me gnashing my teeth over this one ... I couldn't get them to turn their clothes right side out. I tried every remedy known to desperate mothers from threats to cutting off ear lobes. (Well, actually I didn't go quite that far). Then, I hit upon the perfect solution — surrender. I started washing the clothes the same way they were putting them into the laundry and returning them from the wash the same way. If an arm or leg was in instead of out, they get the garment back the same way. They soon learned they had to turn them right-side out eventually and also they washed nicer if turned the right way in the first place. Even the young children soon caught on. (You have to work with them — they would just as soon wear their clothes inside out.) But, for the most part this has proved to be a most satisfactory solution all around. — Struggling but Winning Dear Heloise: A friend of mine recently got food poisoning from chicken. Her doctor said chicken is a common source of food poisoning if it has not been properly handled and processed. I am a new cook and want to know what to look for when I buy chicken at the supermarket. I want to avoid any problems with chicken spoiling. — Cathy T. The United States Department of Agriculture recommends that first you select a bird that is chilled. Food poisoning germs don't multiply rapidly in cold poultry or in poultry that is stored at 40 degrees F. or below. Then, look for the dates on the label such as "sell by" or "use by". Though this is not reequired by law, many retailers supply such dates. A "sell by" date, which is the last date a store should sell a product, is the date most often found on poultry labels. The "use by" date tells you how long the product will retain its top eating quailty after you buy it. Heloise's hints KING FEATURES Finally, DO NOT buy poultry with an "off" odor. If it smells funny, it could be spoiled. — Heloise Dear Readers: I'm sure as consumers you are concerned with the safety of the food you purchase from your local supermarket. For that you rely on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and they have published a booklet called, "The Safe Food Book: Your Kitchen Guide". This nifty book covers general food safety.
