Round Robin

The other night we were having a relatively quiet evening until about bed time. Then we had a medical call.


After the call we returned to the station. I jumped off the rig, slipped the plymovent onto the exhaust and slipped out of my bunker pants. Just as one foot cleared the boot the tones went off again. Another medical.

After the call we returned to the station. I stepped out of the engine, placed the plymovent onto the exhaust and climbed out of my bunker pants. Just as one sock hit the floor the tones went off again. A citizen assist.

After the helping the person off of the floor we returned to the station. I shook my head as I left the apparatus, hooked up the plymovent and took off by gear. Just as I set up my gear on the floor in case we had another call, to my disbelief, the tones went off again. Another medical aide.

After this call we returned to the station. I jumped off the rig, slipped the plymovent onto the exhaust and waited around for a few minutes in my bunker pants. After 5 minutes I once again slipped off my turnouts. Just as one foot cleared the boot the tones went off again. A fire alarm.

I swear that sometimes there is a hidden camera in the station and someone is messing with my head.

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug.

We had dinner out the other evening. The restaurant is directly across from the Clifton firehouse. 5 runs by the end of our meal--and we're nurses--we eat fast! I feel for you.

Nights like that suck and are such a tease. It also makes your shift go by SO SLOW.

It wasn't so bad. We were done in time to get 5 hours of sleep.
