Ive heard its much worse than that... rumor has it that the strikers are interfering with the 911 calls and are inhibiting the ambulance crews of doing their jobs while on scene of those calls. Rumors of course... I don't know if there is any hint of truth in that.
Do they not understand that every call they don't run, but we do, their company still gets in trouble for and fined... They're acting like children if these rumors are true.
