It took less than 4 minutes from dispatch to arrival at the scene (try to get that in rural Iowa). Three minutes later, he's on his way to a hospital.
That's pretty good.
From the case files of the Des Moines Fire Department:So Des Moines police demand faster response times to accidents for themselves than the public? Is that what it's saying?
Some Des Moines police officers are wondering whether Des Moines Fire Department medics were slow in getting to the aid of a cop who was run over by a pickup truck on Sunday.
“Our initial dispatch was on an assault,” said Capt. Steve Brown, fire department spokesman. “We didn’t know a police officer was involved until we were practically on scene.”
The officer is reportedly recovering well. I wish him a full and speedy recovery.
Those officers complaining? They can pound sand.
