Fresh Eyes II

From Gary upon his return to DC:

The fire departments need someone savvy at hooking up lights and generators. This is an urgent need. They are running night calls up on I 10 without scene lighting. They rely on mutual aid to assist with lights but nothing is sure. It would be a lot better if they could get lights operating on their own trucks. Tommy Dean does some maintenance work on the vehicles, but he is trying to get his new house finished as well.

As he said the trucks are getting broke faster than he can fix.

Another urgent need is ANSI Class III traffic vest and cones. Accidents occur almost daily up on I 10 and there are no safety vests. I think we ran three medical calls a fire and 9 or 10 accident calls while I was there. Its bad enough that you could almost justify staging vehicles at the Mississippi Welcome Center.
