I feel safer already

There is a security guard at Torrance Memorial Hospital that takes it upon herself to find out the destination of every patient we bring in. I can understand the questioning if we're bringing in a patient to the ER or direct admitting if we pull up without our lights and sirens on but you'd think that she'd figure it out that when we pull up with a Torrance FD vehicle with lights on and siren blaring that we might just be headed for the ER?? I'm tempted to tell her in these situations that we are just bringing some belongings to a patient in the hospital and that we asked Torrance FD to escort us!

The title of this post comes from one of the firefighters who, after hearing the security guards questions, said to me, "I feel safer already, don't you?"
