What do you mean old hickory? Too much? These guys should be paid more. They are professional, they are constantly training, they put up with all kinds of unpleasant situations, (bar fights, violent drugged out nit wits, get spit on) more and more they are hauling back breaking sick people down small steps. MFD is replacing their men due to retirement. Our poor police dept keeps losing men to other jobs? Why? But don't get me wrong here...the police were able to solve the food pantry robbery in record time with a shortage of men! Such good work so the good people can continue to do the Lord 's work!
