    Default How many and what type of calls did you run over the holiday?

    My department has stayed pretty busy in the last 48 hours or so, we have had about 15 EMS calls and a few fire calls and we still have a while to go.

    we had a bunch of severe thunderstorms plow through here over the weekend, so about 5 to 6 calls on that, we had a standby on Monday, but as far as the 4th, we havent had any calls, but we had a parade this morning, and we were standing by for the fireworks in a neighboring town with the Brush Truck, which I just got back from. So we've been busy too.

    We had an MVA at 3am yesterday (car vs. embankment) An electrical fire in a basement around 1600 and we were put on standby for a possible structure around 1900
    There are three truths in life:

    1. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
    2. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian faith.
    3. Two Baptists do not recognize each other in the liquor store.

    lol I swear we cover the tractor trailer bermuda triangle. It's the junction of interstate 70 and 79. UGH! There's a hill heading up from it and we think that's where they burn out their brakes a lot. If you include 2 days before and after the holiday we've been REALLY busy. here's a run up

    2 Priority Dispatchs(medical calls)
    1 Stand-by(for a structure)
    1 Structure(Not the above one)
    6 Tractor trailer fires(2 were real, rest were overheated brakes)
    More accidents with injuries than you can shake a stick at(We're pushin around 15 for the last 2-3 days)
