Interesting Article Sent in by a Reader – “Firefighters Become Medics to the Poor”

Seagrave 2006 front

If you were out of town for Labor Day weekend, you may have missed this article (like I did). Thanks to a reader for sending. From the New York Times on Sept. 3rd:

“Washington’s fire department, which has not faced major layoffs, is dispatched along with Emergency Medical Services to almost all emergency calls in the belief that it can provide the quickest response. It gets more such calls per capita than just about any other fire department in the nation, and a disproportionate number come from poorer neighborhoods like Trinidad, where Engine 10 is based, in the Northeast section of the city.”

You can read the full article here.

Should firefighters be responding to medical calls?
