So, I live on the very edge of civilization (I'm surrounded by corn & soy fields, horse, cattle and pig farms....) and my town is an all volunteer fire fighter & EMS force. Today was an example of potential overkill by the volunteers. I had 4 pick up trucks, 1 EMS supervisor, 1 ambulance all show up to take care of the Goblin Grandma who is currently living next door w/ 3 other (mentally challenged?) adults in a one bedroom apartment. (I have nicknames for them all - Lazy, Crazy - husband & wife, Goblin Grandma, & Ludo.)
Goblin Grandma can't weigh more than 120 lbs soaking wet and it took all these people to show up, get her on the backboard and then, down the steps? Note: the EMS Supervisor "helped" by backing the ambulance up into the parking area in front of my building, then sat down in the cool ambulance. :-p
Are the members of your fire & rescue department city/state employees, or are they an all volunteer force?
DK/DC: Breakfast? Do you have a favorite, lazy morning, breakfast food? Me: I usually do cheesy scrambled eggs on Sundays, but am totally a sucker for St. Louis (Panera) Bread Co's fruit & yogurt parfaits. ;)
