Dear NJ-SR for Open Gov:

Attached are the records we have located which are responsive to your request regarding South River EMS, Inc. I cannot research "Employees and / or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's)" as this office does not maintain such a list. I suggest that you request this information directly from the Borough of South River. Otherwise you will need to specify who the Employees and / or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's) of South River EMS are via a new OPRA request.

Sincerely,

Thomas A. Starr, MICP

Dear DOH-DHEPRCUSTODIAN,

The same OPRA request was just made on May 11, 2019 and replied to; by your NJ DOH OEMS Department on May 13, 2019 regarding any complaints regarding another EMS provider. Your Department made a replay with the screen shot of Investigations regarding RWJ EMS provider in the last (5) years. The same exact OPRA request was just made here however, with a totally different EMS Provider name and OEMS EMS Provider ID number then the request made on May 11, 2019. Your response to this OPRA request / report is somewhat different and is missing the screen shots of; any and all complaints and investigations made to the NJ DOH OEMS (Your Department) in the last (5) years regarding South River EMS, Inc which according to other OPRA records South River EMS, Inc is a non-profit organization; which employees are not Borough employees. Your response did not provide any investigations or complaints documents made against South River EMS provider as asked and requested. Do to the fact your previous response did provide the screen shot pages of the your investigation pages like the response your Department submitted on May 13, 2019 regarding RWJ EMS then this request should be fulfilled as soon possible. Please send screen shots or any documents from any investigation and / or complaints pertaining to South River EMS, Inc listed in the original request above which were received,logged or investigated by your OEMS Department with in the last (5) years. Please provide the similar response your Department submitted to OPRA Machine web site regarding RWJ EMS request on May 13, 2019 for this request.

Thank you in advance, for your prompt attention in this matter.

Yours sincerely,
