*Hearing a call come in I take it*

 

'911, where's your emergency?'

 

'22 Bell Road in Oxnard'

 

'What's your emergency?'

 

'It's my uncle, he was eating some ribs at our family BBQ when he suddenly clutched his chest and fell out of his chair.  He's not breathing and I don't think he has a pulse.  We think he had a heart attack.'

 

'Alright, stay on the line so I can get more info, I'm sending help.'

 

'Ok, my brother's trying to do CPR but we don't know what we're doing'

 

*Muting the call I see what units are available and decide to send the RA*

 

"County to FD, RA-1 due to 22 Bell Road in Oxnard for a possible heart attack."

"Oh. Raven. I uh. think we have like. A call. But. I don't know. It's been so long. Or is that my alarm?"

*my actual phone alarm goes off with "oooo you touch my tra la la*

*I realize I'm still wearing my green mankini. So I go down to the bay and look for Ewan*

I blow air out of my mouth and look at the green mankini monstrosity walking towards me. I shake my head.

"Can you be serious for once in your life you porn star reject?" I say as we get into the medic unit. I punch enroute and acknowledge the supplemental.

"Can't believe we got a fucking cardiac."

I pic up the mic. "RA-1 please start law enforcement."

"DO NOT HATE, I SOLD MY KIDS TO A CHINESE SALT MINE TO PAY FOR THIS SICK BOD!"
I exclaim as I put on turnout pants to look more normal, and a shmedium shirt to show off my guns and hide the slight beer belly covering my 12 pack.

I hop in the passenger seat because Ewan tends to be the better driver, remembering previous experiences.

I turn on the hi-lo siren and lights and accelerate out of the bay like I just launched off of an aircraft carrier. I look over at Frank as he starts the report.

"What the fuck are we eating tonight Frank?"

"Well Ewan, I have asparagus, rice and chicken that I prepped 3 days ago for us and its sitting in the fridge. A few pbrs and some jbox tacos could also do. What do you feel like?"

*I type the report and put in the address and caller, it pops up with a previous run from some years ago stating something about a lawnmower gas tank explosion. But I don't say anything to Ewan about it yet*

"You already know what I want. Let's swing by Jbox on the way back. Even though they discontinued the bacon ranch ones." I say as we make our way through the streets. Traffic is pretty heavy and we're making slow progress. "I hope this dude isn't actually gorked, because he's gonna be fuckin dead when we get there."

*On my way from a community meeting in Oxnard I hear a request for pd coming from EMS*

“400 in the area show me headed over.”

*I flip the siren and lights on as I head over. Within a few minutes I find myself in front of a 2 story suburban house. There is a male in his early 20s flailing his arms.*

“400 show me out”

*I get out and the guy runs over to me.*

‘What’s going on’

‘Your not the fire department!’

*I sigh since I’m wearing a white shirt and gun belt*

‘But you have to help him! He’s not breathing!’

*I grab the narcan and stick in in my back pocket. And follow him to the back yard. There’s a small family gathering crowded around a guy on the floor, when they see my arrival a middle age woman runs over.*

‘Please save my husband!’

‘Ok mam did he take anything?’

‘What? He wouldn’t do that!.’

‘Ok mam I’m going to help him everything is going be ok.’

*I kneel down and since he’s not breathing I check the pulse nothing I spray the narcan into his nose and check the pulse again. Nothing. I grab the radio off my belt.*

“400 confirmed arrest rush EMS starting cpr.”

*I begin CPR*

"Swallow. Don't be a fucking pussy." I say. It's been 12 minutes since we marked enroute. We finally pull up on scene and mark via MDT.

I put on a pair of large gloves and roll out of the truck helping Frank grab equipment.

*I walk up to the house and through the open door see Russo exclaiming loudly "HES GONNA BE OKAY" when asked for the one millionth time if they're going to be okay. I think to myself, well, this is going to be a shitshow.*

I set my bags on the floor

"Hey Ewan, can you ask the family about our patient here?"

I look at the patient's face. I know this person. He was blown up by gas cans and miraculously survived 9 years ago. I think to myself. What a legend.

"You're doing great Russo, give me a sec to set up and we'll do a rhythm check."

I look around and see the middle aged woman crying. I motion her over to the kitchen so we can talk.

"Hello, my name is Ewan I'm a paramedic with the county. When did all this happen?" I say in my robotic overly nice customer service voice.

"20 minutes ago!! He had just gotten back from dialysis and he said he felt bad at the bbq!!" The woman wailed. I internally sigh as there is no barbecue, only hot dogs and hamburgers. As I look up on the fridge I see a gold piece of paper with a big stop sign on it.

"Is this his by chance?" I ask, motioning to the DNR displayed on the fridge.

"Oh yes, that is his. He just got that the other day. He had a lot going on with his body the doctor said we should get one." The woman said in between sniffles.

"I see, well we are legally obligated to discontinue any heroic measures like CPR on him. I need to go consult with the others." I say as the wife hysterically breaks down again.

I walk into the other room with the DNR. I raise my eyebrows when I see that there is a huge "I got Narcan" sticker from the police auto injector on the guys forehead. I proudly show the DNR to Frank as he sets up a rhythm check. As Russo continues CPR.

"You guys can stop now." I say. As soon as the words leave my mouth a geyser of beer and hamburger comes forth catching all three of us with chunks.

"Hey Ewan, it's Galligano. The hero who survived the gas can explosion. Let me see if I have a flag on the rig to cover him."

I say as I stand up. I pick up the bags and walk out to the rig, put them away and look for a flag for our fallen hero.

I don't find a flag, but I do find my Shiloh flag mankini and a possibly used sheet. So I go ahead and grab that and walk inside.

"Ma'am, we thank him for his service. And for his service, we will lay the flag over him."

I put the sheet over him and put the mankini on top.

Get down on one knee and stare at the sky and say

"NOOOOOOOOOOOO"

Get up like nothing happened, walk outside and smoke a cigarette.

As we put the equipment back on the truck I turn to Russo. "Good job on the narcan buddy. Send us the details for our report when you're finished."

I get in the rig and look back at the house as we're about to leave and see Russo get in his car in the mirror. I see Galliganos friend with a bunch of gas cans.

She drags him away probably to the back yard, I say nothing and turn up the Gunther. https://youtu.be/v3sNARLNu_Y
