As many of you know, my husband, David, and I met while working as Paramedics for one of the largest EMS providers in the Atlanta area, DeKalb County EMS. Not too long after we met, we were working on separate trucks at neighboring fire stations, only a few miles apart.
One day, a call came out in the territory my partner and I were working. It was for a person down, stabbed in the abdomen. The 911 dispatcher stated that the caller was a child and that she stated the victim was also a child. After the initial call was dispatched, my husband and his partner, Cathy, believed they were closer to the location, so they 'jumped the call' from us.
I won't tell you the rest because I can show you! You see, that call my dear hubby stole from me ended up being on the TV show Rescue 911! And, ahem, no....I've never let him live it down. :0)
The other day a dear old friend from our EMS days told me that the episode is on YouTube so I thought I would share it with you all. Please keep in mind that this was 21 years ago AND they were made to make it look all Hollywood. Very rarely do public safety workers (Police, Fire, EMS) actually slide sideways up to a scene in their vehicles and then get out and run! That is extremely dangerous for many different reasons.
Anyway, without further ado......
Here we are today, married almost 20 years! And, I really did forgive him. :0)
Thanks for watching! Have a great day!
