EMS, Billing, and Taxes

Here's a question I have for all of you, and I'd love to hear your opinions.

Say you live in a Town where you recieve municipal Police and EMS funded by taxes.

If you need an ambulance in this town, is it fair to get a bill from that tax-supported agency?

My thoughts are- you pay a LOT in taxes for this and other town services- and you use them and get a bill?!?! What are the taxes for then?
