EMS Calls With Regional Flavor

There are certain calls you just get a lot more of in a small midwestern town. I doubt Los Angeles EMS goes on a lot of calls where they rush to the local coal mine and then sit and wait because the patient was an hour underground when he was hurt. Boston probably doesn't have to do standby at the Combine Demolition Derby, and there couldn't have been many silo fires in Miami last fall. Similarly, we don't get a lot of calls for shark attacks or people falling off mountains out here on the vast and unyielding prairies.

New York EMS must be running hundreds of calls tonight . . . . and I bet not a single one of them involved a volunteer firefighter falling off an ass. We had two of those.



Ladies and gentlemen, if you've ever been injured during a spirited game of Donkey Basketball . . . . it's just possible . . . . you might be a redneck. If the EMT's on scene film you with their phones instead of treating, you're probably a firefighter.

Ok, that is something I've never seen before.

What was the word you taught me?

Oh yeah, what a bunch of Newts.

I've never participated in donkey basketball, but I have seen the game. Does that make me a pink-neck or somesuch?

Don't fight it, Farmist. Search your feelings and be who you are.
