Lost Weekend

 Amherst Fire Department ambulance, Central Station

So once again this past weekend Amherst Fire Department was kept busy all over town--especially to our institutions of higher education--dealing with the potentially life threatening aftermath of too much alcohol consumption (ETOH).

UMass, Amherst College, Hampshire College and even a recently opened business in downtown Amherst, all required visits from one of our ambulances, meaning one less emergency vehicle available to those regular folks who cannot afford to drink themselves into oblivion.

Well if UMass wasn't locking people up in the psych ward with such frequency, there would be a lot less ambulance runs, including two on your list this weekend.

Larry, it would be more accurate if AFD included "Thirsty Thursday" night in the weekend reports.
