Life Saving Questions for Marco Islanders


What is a COPCN (Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity)?

Are the safety and wellbeing of Marco Island citizens seriously affected?

How are the Marco Island Fire/Rescue Department’s Advanced Life Support rescue efforts being limited?

What is the role of the Collier County Commissioners regarding the COPCN and emergency medical service for Marco Island?

Do Collier County politics and money play into all of this?

The voters of unincorporated Collier County, which excludes Marco Island, will vote to consolidate Collier County EMS in a “straw vote” on March 15, 2016. How can the results of this straw vote affect Marco Island citizens (who have NO voice in this vote)?

What should Marco island citizens do to insure the lifesaving emergency medical services it deserves?

In an emergency, time is of the essence. The sooner an individual can be transported to a facility for proper care, the better the chance for a good outcome and survival.

Fire Chief Michael Murphy will be the guest speaker to answer these extremely important questions and address your lifesaving concerns at the Marco Island Property Owners Public Forum Meeting on Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 3 PM in council chambers located at 51 Bald Eagle Drive.; 239-394-9285.
