It's funny working for EMS in this county and sitting in meetings like we did today and NO ONE knew what was going on. This whole county is screwed if it hits us and here's why.

EMS in this county is divided by two things, Fire and EMS. Fire pulled rank and told commissioners that they need more people incase of anything going wrong and seeing as how it's county rules that an ambulance is not allowed to run hot when the wind is gusting over 40MPH, must EMPs will be grounded.

So with that being said, most of the EMS guys went over to Fire, double time pay, and it'll be an easy day for them.

Now for the medical side, we're screwed, as all those people who went from EMS to fire, now left all those positions open, and since we're the ONLY EMS provider for this entire county, we have no one to fill those positions.

Needless to say it's going to suck if my county gets hit.

I don't think there is really such a thing.

I don't foresee this thing picking up all that much. Hurricanes are just marketing for Home Depot and Publix.

Yes and on the flip side of that, law suits. We've had some crappy news lately, but now not being able to run codes with the wind and bad weather, on top of not every ambulance carrying a life pack defib, it's going to be fun to say the least.
