I was in a 'situation' this morning (Meridianville) at the corner of Bellhurst Rd. & the Parkway. Before I knew it, Jordan (?), HEMSI Paramedic [I'm sorry I didn't get her last name & she said she just had gotten off from work] was at my truck's window asking if I was all right. She stayed with me until a cement truck pulled me out of the ditch. A Madison County Sherriff's Deputy came along & directed traffic around my 'situation' (I turned too sharply & ended up in a ditch). It took a Isbell Cement truck with a chain to pull me out. I DIDN'T GET TO THANK THIS DRIVER.I just want to thank Jordan (?), the Sherriff's Deputy & the cement truck driver for pulling me out of that ditch. THANKS ALL of you!
Hey, I love most things about these guy's but when they tell you that you must walk down the stairs when you are so sick and weak is it not you. I find it crazy that 60% of them are severly over weight. I have seen two that are more than 300 pds. If you work as an EMT or Police officer you should be in excellent shape. Our cost of service is fair, but how much goes to paying for sick or injured workers due to their extream weight. These men and woman need to be put on notice that if they can't run to a scene or get up stairs or carry a patient down the stairs due to their weight it is a serious problem.
