Is Anyone Out There?
This month is shaping up to be the busiest February ever for the Amherst Fire Department with "station coverage" calls issued by Dispatch seven times this past weekend. At one point a little over a half hour expired before station coverage was attained.
Fortunately fire did not come calling during that exposed time period because The Beast, once unleashed, grows exponentially.
And exceedingly fast.
Note one-third of the medical calls to UMass were substance abuse calls (one of them a passed out 16 year old boy) as were one-out-of-two to Amherst College.
