On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, Robert Moulton co-hosted the community access television show, "Let's Talk About It". While North Adams Ambulance Service, Inc. (d.b.a. Northern Berkshire EMS and Transport), nor its Board of Directors is affiliated with Northern Berkshire Community Access Television, the "Let's Talk About It" show or its content, Robert Moulton, Jr. has served as a long-time member of the North Adams Ambulance Board of Directors and its President since 2006.
During the show, Mr. Moulton made comments and expressed views that do not align with or reflect the mission, values and vision of the North Adams Ambulance Board of Directors and the Northern Berkshire EMS and Transport agency. Everyone from our dedicated board to our well-trained employees, strive to provide the most comprehensive pre-hospital care in the most efficient manner possible. We are committed to maintaining an environment that fosters community involvement, innovative technology, and customer service to make each patient contact a positive experience. Our goal is to create an exceptional, patient-focused experience we would want for ourselves or our loved ones as the standard.
Early this evening, the North Adams Ambulance Board of Directors met for an emergency meeting to discuss and respond to Robert Moulton's comments. During the meeting, the board voted to accept Robert Moulton's resignation as President and a member of the board effective immediately.
On behalf of the North Adams Ambulance Board of Directors and Northern Berkshire EMS and Transport employees, we want to express our sincere concern for the behavior and comments made by Robert Moulton, Jr., and to reiterate that they are antithetical to our agency's mission. We want everyone to know our approach to all the communities and constituents we serve remains steadfast and includes embracing diversity and showing compassion, courtesy, and respect; all embedded within the highest of ethical standards. We believe the action taken by the board this evening serves as a testament to the same.
North Adams Ambulance Service, Inc.
