Sure can tell its the holidays. The elderly people that live alone and are lonely will call 911 for anything. Had a call 40 minutes into my shift for an unknown medical with Lifeline activation. Arrived to find a frequent flier needing assistance with her Hoveround scooter.
Had a similar call a few years backon thanksgiving. Was another unknown medical with Lifeline activation. She was unable to pick up the roaster with the turkey in it. She needed us to put it in the oven for her. No we did not have to take it out, her family arrived and assisted with that.
just a mutual aid for sparking outlet, was cancelled, then a yard fire got out of control an was heading to a barn, mutual aid on that one, hopped on first engine out but couldn't get to it only brush trucks. Wound up staging at station of mutual aid dept just in case another call came out in there district
It was a head-on MVC with one fatality. Sadly, the deceased was a 16-year-old kid driving his brand new car. I feel sad for the family. No PTSD or anything like that, just sympathetic. My family and I had the best Christmas ever! Hope you guys did as well.
