S-R article on SFD service degradation.

Article in this morning's paper on firefighters not being able to act as firemen when they are on a medical call, returning from or going to a medical call. This happens more than you might think - a breathing difficulty call because the house is filling with smoke, a CPR in progress call that neglects to mention that the house is also on fire, a  trauma call that later updates to note that the person set her apartment on fire and then jumped out the window, etc. etc. etc. These calls all happened within the last year, along with plenty others.
