Yea I remember....I'm pretty sure that WA has no duty to act. I think it would be best to check with ff on this one, the forum leader. I'll get back with you. Might be a day or so, I'll be on and off airplanes all day tomorrow, but I'll find out.
Hmmmmm......good one. I'll have to get back to you on that one.
For me it is not so much an issue. I am pretty much always on duty. I am a resident volunteer in my fire district so I am on 24-7 when I am in the district. And if I am not in the district, I am probaly working at my amb service. The only time I am not on is when I leave the district like on vacation or when I run into the city.
I will stop and help out if it is apparent that death or any long term damage to health will occor if I didn't step in and they had to wait for on duty EMS.
Don't even worry about late reply. This is an Internet forum and family defiantly comes first. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
I'm in Colville, WA. It is about 70 miles north of Spokane, 50 miles south of Canada and 30 miles west of Idaho. So pretty much it is "out there". Eastern WA rocks though and inky opinion will blow the other side out of the water any day. (although I love the ocean..........) ;-)
