.

In business since 1936, Fallon Ambulance Service Headquarters is now located at 111-115 Brook Road in Quincy, Massachusetts.

The street EMT's and Paramedics of Fallon Ambulance Service (FAS) are a rare breed of professionals. Beset by unreasonable call volumes and consistently dispatched to late calls without breaks...these outstanding field professionals still manage to greet their patients with a smile indicative of their intense professional pride. Outstanding patient care in the face of adversity is the hallmark of the FAS Street EMT or Paramedic.

In addition, Fallon Ambulance has a 40 member Incident Response Group whose members routinely seek and obtain special EMS operations training. From "Incident Rehabilitation" to "Hazardous Materials Decontamination and Protection". This very active group has responded to Fire Ground support operations in Quincy, Braintree, Weymouth, Milton, Dedham, and Brookline. Far from just emergency responders, however, their dedication to community involvement has been impressive, as evidenced by their fund driving campaign to save the Weymouth fireworks display in 2006.

OPEIU Local 6 is currently the union representing these fine healthcare providers, although the company has them listed as mere "Ambulance Drivers" with the National Labor Relations Board (thereby relegating them to mere medical taxi drivers). Recent scuttlebutt indicates that the EMT's and Paramedics of Fallon Ambulance are disatisfied with their current representation and wish to bring in a bonafide EMS Union. The National EMS Association (NEMSA) is a registered labor union created for the sole purpose of bettering the lives of EMS Workers.

Despite a renewed focus and vigor displayed by OPEIU Local 6 in its negative newsletter campaign against NEMSA, the majority of EMT's and Paramedics at Fallon Ambulance hold high hopes for positive changes with bringing in union representation that focuses on the issues facing EMS professionals.

Pros: Dedicated EMT's and Paramedics serving the community and their patients with pride.

Cons: Management focus on call volume more than patient care and care for field personnel. Dissatisfying union representation.
