And what were those four emergencies? Well if you read my post this morning you should be able to guess, as that particular Party House was half the problem. Yes, all four ambulances were required to ferry four college students to the Cooley Dickinson Hospital due to ETOH, an overdose of alcohol.
That kind of avoidable, irresponsible behavior endangers the particular students themselves and the general public left waiting should they require immediate help.
AFD weekend statistics
"I just compiled the stats from Thursday 10/20, 6pm to Friday 10/21 6pm. It breaks out like this:
UMASS – 6 Responses: 1 Fire Alarm; 5 EMS, one of which was an ETOH female.
Hampshire College – 2 Responses: 2 EMS, one of which was an ETOH male.
Town – 13 Responses: 11 EMS; 1 Fire Alarm; 1 Car into People’s United Bank.
During that 24 hour period we also requested station coverage 6 times due to all of our resources being committed to calls for service."
