A few weeks ago I posted a story about an EMS unit in Milwaukee being found to have a bullet hole. At the time people were not sure if someone intentionally shot at the ambulance or if it was some kind of stray shot.
Now it seems fire and EMS personally are being shot at by someone. Several rounds hit the ambulance and one nicked a firefighter. He was treated at the hospital and released.

I understand people hating police. It is sad people think police are the enemy but it is a fact of life. As for Fire and EMS, no one should be hating them. I don’t care who you are, criminal or otherwise, medics and firefighters are the GOOD GUYS/GALS!.
When you call 911 they will come to help. I fear the day that EMS refuses to goto some areas until they have a police escort. That will slow down life saving.
The head of the Fire Union held a press conference. Here is his statement on incident
Folks all I have to say is stay safe out there!
