Guam - The Guam Fire Department's recommendation to double the fees for ambulance services isn't sitting well with residents who have mixed reactions about paying even more for emergency medical transports. "If that's the only way the government can get their money back, go for it," said Pedro Santos. "If the Legislature don't want to raise up the fees so let the government take care of their own fees we can have a better service, you know."

Terrance Camacho added, "Why would they do that, it's already hard enough so I don't think they should it's too much already everything's expensive right now."

"I don't think so," said Rolani Blas, "because $195 that's a lot already plus the hospital fee when their in its going to be too much."
