Bombing Kills 41 Revolutionary Guards in Iran, Government Says

Source: NY Times

TEHRAN ó A suicide bomber killed 41 members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps on a bus in a restive region of southeast Iran on Wednesday, Iranian media reported. It was among the deadliest attacks in Iran in years.

The Revolutionary Guards quickly blamed the United States for the assault, which came during the week that Iranís leaders have been celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Islamic revolution that overthrew the American-backed shah in 1979. The Revolutionary Guards did not explain precisely how the Americans could have been involved in the attack.

Dispatches by the official Islamic Republic News Agency and the Fars News Agency said the victims had been traveling between the cities of Zahedan and Khash near the Pakistan border, a haven for militant separatist groups and drug smugglers.

After initially reporting that at least 20 people had died in the attack, with an additional 20 wounded, Fars updated the death toll to at least 41 ó suggesting that everyone on the bus had been killed.

Ambulance Service of Fulton County shuts down

GLOVERSVILLE N.Y. (WRGB) - The Ambulance Service of Fulton County shut down on Friday night.

The Ambulance Service of Fulton County is literally boarded up. Its fleet of emergency vehicles idle. Its employees done with what turned out to be their final shift. ďThe business model is not sustainable,Ē said Alan Mendelsohn, the service's vice president.

Mendelsohn says the money problem centers on Medicaid calls, which make up a large amount of their work. Mendelshon says the money they get from it just isnít enough. ďWe figure it cost us $550 every time one of our ambulances leaves the building. And when youíre only being reimbursed $220 on a large percentage of our calls, and then many other calls we donít get anything,Ē he said.

Mendelsohn says the low payout for these calls, coupled with no financial support from towns or the state, just couldnít be sustained.

...In New York state, police and fire departments are considered essential services, but EMS isnít.

...The service responded to more than 8,400 hundred calls in 2017.
