Please correct, OXYGEN was offered by the BRICK TOWNSHIP VOLUNTEER EMS, not the Brick Township Police EMS. The volunteers don't charge for services. Give credit to the Volunteers that worked the hurricane. Volunteer Fire Dept. and Volunteer EMS. Yeah for the Volunteers.

"The volunteers don't charge for services." but the town pays for their repairs, fuel, supplies as well as registration and insurance on some of their vehicles, so while they don't charge their patients, they cost the township residents money and do not bring any money into the town, where as the police ems charges a resident's health insurance and only accepts what the insurance company pays, thus bringing in revenue to offset the cost, so there's no out of pocket expenses to the patients and they get the added bonus of treatment by EMT's that are career professionals that answer hundreds of calls a month each, rather than a volunteer, who on average answers less than a dozen calls a month.
