One evening while working for the Elgin EMS I was at home taking calls when dispatch called me on the radio and advised me that I was needed at the station for a patient in the drive. About the time dispatch was saying this my partner was yelling over the radio but I couldn't understand her. When I got there found a mini van in EMS drive with a elderly lady in full arrest (long time full arrest). Her husband said " I found her and figured I could get her to you quicker then you could get to us" I had many drive ups but they were usually still alive at that time.

damn, that one takes the cake!

We get EMS walk-ins at the fire house here in Skiatook all the time and it drives me nuts. I think Oklahoma needs a television campaign to teach people TO call 911 when they have an emergency,not load them up in the ol' pickup an drive 'em in to town.

Hey... the business was a dry cleaners. It was almost literally next door (well, two buildings over) from the fire station. I think a walk-in was the wiser choice in this instance.

As to the fire, mostly confined to the attic. Didn't look like a lot of damage from the outside, and everybody was safe.

By the way, hi. First post here.
