I hope that the one taken is ok and that there is no delayed effect from this event for any of them.
Here in TN. we ask for the right away it is not a given, I always ask myself when in the 33 traffic vehicle this; "what if the ones holding us up are family of the ones we are responding to? will they ask us why it took so long to get there?" and then I ask this; " can they not see and hear us? or do they just don't care?"
God bless us all,
on every call.
