Folks this did not happen to me, nor do I know the person involved. The LOML is an EMT, and as a result I hear the fire calls go out to 'our' district on a regular basis. I was working from home yesterday afternoon when I heard a call go out for our EMS squad:
"Bridgeport Rescue, male 64 at such and such an address, Arm lacerations from a Tablesaw."
Just one impersonal sentence from the 911 dispatcher, but my heart dropped a mile when I heard it.
Now I only half listen to the pager as a rule, after a time they all run together but that one still has me really thinking about shop safety. Lori was at work, and so wasn't on the call, so I can't really ask details of how he is doing, but just take it as a reminder to be careful out there in our respective shops. I'm keeping him in my prayers as who knows he might be someone who has been here . Let's hope he heals up to 100% again.
