Jim- What is a lawn rescue squad? I need one desperately!


Congrats on the new job! I'm not a firefighter-but a gal in blue.

Just a sweet little old gray-haired granny here, but I have a long history of extended family members who are firefighters, emergency medical technicians, police officers -- I applaude you for your bravery and passion to duty and compassion for your fellow man.

Well, you already know that I'm an EMT - with plenty of time spent at fires in Bergen County!

I'm an medivac pilot, sort of the same ballpark. Starting to sound like the beginning to a bad joke:


A cop, medic, firefighter and EMS pilot walk into a bar... or what was left of it by then.

@jsteck
That's "Fair Lawn" the name of a town. Sorry I can't help you get any grass, especially considering your occupation.


@justelaine
Thanks, and I applaud your family.  Though not the case with me it seems like public servant is built into the DNA.


@Blaneyphoto
Nathan, I thought you just spent all your time in the ER with broken toes.

@HeliRy
I've got my heli license too, but I haven't flown in years.

Only part of the time!  But the up side to that is I know all the guys who are going to arrive and carry me out of the house!

Yep. Born and lived there for my first 17 years. I even served on the USS New Jersey.

Oh god, every time I hear the term "Jersey Boy" I'm reminded of those two guys from outside the Quick Stop. You know, the one with the crappy video store beside it. Ha!

My dad was a medivac pilot in WWII.  Does that count?

My first agent was from New Jersey--in the beginning I could barely understand him when we talked.

A cop, medic, firefighter and EMS pilot are walking down a street in Chicago one day. One of them walks into a bar, but the other three ducked. Fortunately, between them they had sufficient professional training and were able to determine that the injury was not life threatening and only required a cold compress.

I think I figured out why this is such a bad joke. It has no punch line.
