City EMS Rings in the New Year.

2011- the first EMS call in the City was for a man with a laceration on his bum. Most of the City Paramedics are convinced that the 911 dispatchers held the call so it would be the first one of the year. The dispatcher who put it out kept cracking (no pun intended) up.

You would have had a good bet if you had guessed the first call would have been a shooting- we had a lot of them in 2010. The funny thing is the shooters got less accurate as the year went on- resulting in more transports and less pronouncements... and stabbings- lots of stabbings in the last quarter of 2010... knives are scary, fight a knife and you will get cut...

One of the ER's had a scoreboard up on New Years- happy drunks, mad drunks, out of control drunks, beat up drunks etc...

I actually got off late on New years Day- some happy drunk put his car into a pole at 0745 or so, right before shift change. He kept asking "...waz dat light red? Waz dat light red?" You never made it to the light jackass... happened at a super busy intersection- lucky no one got killed...

Hope you had a fun filled New Years- make yourself better in '11- no matter how good you were last year.
