QUICK THOUGHT: Could you live with knowing that if you would have stayed home, a first responder would not be dead

By Kyle Quick

No matter what plans you had for today there is nothing more valuable than someone’s life.  Six hours of staying home is better than a lifetime knowing you were the cause of a first responder being killed. We do not mean to sound harsh but these are not things people take into consideration.

We spoke briefly with Franklin County and since snow began falling they have received hundreds of 911 calls, the vast majority of them are drivers who have slid off the road and were uninjured.

After working as a paramedic for 10 years there is one thing people tend to forget when it snows is that people still have heart attacks or a strokes just like any other day.
