A dump truck crashed into vehicles and a Subway restaurant, injuring five people in Seattle, Washington, Monday morning, August 19. Four of the people had serious injuries and all were taken to a nearby hospital Monday morning, the Seattle Fire Department said. While their investigation is ongoing, police said that the truck allegedly suffered a mechanical failure.
Thirteen-year-old wish kid Konner has wanted to be a paramedic since he was just 4 years old. Make-A-Wish Hawaii and Konner’s family would like to thank Seattle Fire Department, Medic One, ‘Iolani School, Honolulu and Kauai EMS Departments, Ronald McDonald House Charities Washington & Alaska, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, Seattle Children’s Hospital and Emergency Airlift & Transport team, and all those who have been by Konner’s side throughout his journey and contributed to his wish come true.
Wish mom Heidi also extends a special thank you to Konner’s cousin, who so graciously donated his liver: “Your gift of life is so precious, and we will never forget what you did for Konner. I encourage people to Donate Life so others may continue to live full, productive lives.”
The supervisor cites 70.160.020 saying the fire department is a “private place”
RCW 70.160.30 clearly and ONLY states:
“No person may smoke in a public place or in any place of employment.”
Furthermore SFD Policy states:
“The smoking of cigarettes, cigars, or pipes of any kind is prohibited at all
times in enclosed work areas, including employee lounges, rest rooms,
stairwells, kitchens, apparatus floor areas, bunk rooms, and office areas.
The policy applies to officers and employees of the City of Seattle and
visitors within facilities owned, leased or rented by the City.
Smoking is not permitted in any public area, and within 25 feet of building entrances, windows, loading docks, apparatus bay doors, vents, or
any other opening where smoke can enter a building is illegal.
Station Captains are responsible for designating a smoking area that is a
minimum of 25 feet away from prohibited areas of their station.
The Deputy Chief of Communications, Training, Battalion 3, Lieutenant
of Services, and the Fire Marshal are responsible for designating a smoking area that is 25 feet away from prohibited areas of their buildings.
Captured here is Aid 5 of the Seattle Fire Department (SFD) responding to a medical emergency in Downtown Seattle with some good use of the electronic siren horn. While the ‘Aid’ and ‘Medic’ units under Seattle’s ‘Medic One’ program are technically ambulances they almost never transport patients, which is the job of private healthcare providers like the American Medical Response (AMR).
