Miami Valley Lighting Outage Form
The Troy Fire Department transports all of our patients to hospitals based upon the guidelines set forth by the Greater Miami Valley EMS Council. These guidelines are our operating protocols and are administered under the direction of our Medical Director.Under these protocols, the TFD transports all of our patients to the closest and most appropriate hospital. We do take into consideration the preference of the patient and preexisting conditions or ongoing treatment unless any of the following conditions are present:•It is medically necessary to transport the patient to the closest hospital for stabilization.• It is unsafe to transport the patient to the preferred/recommended facility due to adverse weather or ground conditions or excessive transport time.• Transporting the patient to the preferred/recommended facility would cause a critical shortage of local EMS resources.In certain situations including special pediatric emergencies, special cardiac or stroke emergencies and trauma emergencies, our crews would transport to the appropriate facilities specified in our protocols.If there are any questions, please contact our administrative office at:(937) 339-0495
Please understand that billing for EMS transport is a nearly universal concept that’s been in place for decades not only in the Miami Valley but throughout the state of Ohio and nation. We are not unique and we try to manage our costs to minimize any burdens to only those that are truly necessary. Our community is very fortunate to receive professional Paramedic-level service on every call.Taxes pay for our training, certification, readiness, facilities and equipment used to provide full-time, Paramedic-level emergency medical services. Our ambulance billing revenue only offsets a portion of our overall operating expenses.If you have questions about or need assistance with paying your bill, we would be happy to have our billing firm contact you with available options.

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This Winter Weather Policy is a general policy to help residents understand the city’s approach to dealing with typical winter storms. It is a general guideline only. Pre-treatment, plowing and salting operations will be evaluated on an event-by-event basis, based on the type, temperature, severity, longevity, and timing of the winter event.
For the purpose of this policy, Primaries are streets classified as primary or secondary, as well as state routes, hills, bridges, and the streets immediately surrounding schools. Residentials are streets including tertiary (branches off of Primaries, local (or residential) streets, dead-end streets and cul-de-sacs.
PRE-TREATMENT – Salt brine pre-treatment will be applied to all Primaries and Residential when conditions permit in an effort to treat small storms of one inch or less. This treatment will also help alleviate larger snows from bonding to the road making it easier to plow. When the forecast allows, City crews may pre-treat Residentials one or two days in advance of the forecasted event. Primaries will be pre-treated as close the forecasted event as possible, to minimize the elimination of brine by heavy vehicular traffic.
PLOWING OPERATIONS – Plowing will begin once Primaries are covered by three or more inches of snow, regardless of the time of day or night of the event. Only Primaries will be plowed while snow is falling. Once snowfall has ceased and the Primaries are cleared, plowing of Residentials may begin, provided plowing will not begin until the first regular work day after the storm has ended. Plowing of Residentials will continue during regular work hours until they have been plowed curb to curb. In the case of a major event (four or more inches of snow), plowing of Residentials during regular work hours may be restricted to providing a single path, in order to provide two-way traffic on these streets.
SALTING OPERATIONS – Once plowing of Primaries has been completed, and the snow has stopped falling, Primaries only may be salted. In the event that no pre-treatment was applied before the storm, salting Primaries may occur prior to plowing. In the event the City determines it is necessary to salt Residentials, salting will take place during regular work hours and include intersections only. This policy shall be enforced unless exceptional circumstances warrant emergency measures, as determined by the Director of Public Service and Safety, in consultation with the Mayor.
