    Alcohol and drugs have a lot to do with most crimes committed in this country. So... shall we continue to lock people up till there's no one left on the street, or shall we begin to fund treatment centers again? Hm. I know I'd rather see someone successfully complete a treatment program and return to society to become a contributor to the economy, rather than to shut them all up in prison where they get little to no treatment, cost us billions of dollars every year, and give little to nothing back, by virtue of being locked up and unable to work in any meaningful way.

    Food for thought.

    Another drinking and driving story...when will people get the message? Too bad he didn't just crash quietly into a pond somewhere. Would have been one less (drunk driver) on the road at no cost to the taxpayer (repairing the Rescue Squad station) and the rest of us insured motorists who pay higher rates thanks to idiots like this! If you drink, stay home, call a cab, or get a designated driver! I'll get off my soapbox now.

    WHAT IS ALL OF THIS??????
    THE PERSON THAT WAS DRINKING IS THE ONE YOU SHOULD TALK TO
    YOU CAN NOT MOVE THE RESCUE BUILDING THAT EASY.

    Fore those of you that are not from here. Rescue Squad was the term we used for many, many years instead of EMS. Many northern states called them Emergency Squads before the term EMS took over. It is where we house the Ambulance.

    Now the term Rescue is used more by Fire Departments as the actual "heavy rescue" stuff like cutting people out of cars and such has been turned over to them. Firemen are very good at tearing things up. I know, I used to be one.

    I'm not sure what part of "Dont' Drink and Drive" people are having trouble understanding. It means don't plan to drive (AT ALL) after you've been drinking. The drunk driver could have killed himself and someone else.
