07/19/08 140 W - + 10 - 9 Orange Rescue Squad Asked to Stand Down

The Orange County Rescue Squad has been asked to stop responding to emergencies until county officials can review their operations. WRAL had this story, while the News & Observer ran a small a story today. The paper's initially reported about the issue originated Wednesday, with OCRS dispatching discontinued on June 27 by the county Emergency Services Director in response to safety concerns. What do you think of the coverage? One-sided? Sensational? The squad's side of the story has yet to be surfaced. Reader comments, such as these, provide the JSP1 (Joe Six Pack) perspective2.

2 With regard to reader comments on WRAL and other sites, those perspectives obviously run the gamut, from fellow responders to regular Joes and Janes.
