Keeping With Holiday Tradition While Working on Thanksgiving Day

We hope that you had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with loved ones, whether they be family or friends. For some, even though it's a holiday, that's not an option on Thanksgiving. We have soldiers overseas, then many public safety and health workers were on the clock just in case anything went wrong.

In the health field, holidays don't exist. Everyone working these types of jobs knows that when they get in the business but the men and women still choose to do it to help people. Harrison County EMS had a few calls Thursday morning and the members even spent some time training for upcoming tests; but in between, they tried to make it as holiday-like as possible. The crew was working together to make a Thanksgiving dinner, full with a turkey, mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. Some even brought homemade deserts for everyone.
 
"We still cook here, we still try to make everything, as we can. We watch football, we play football. We train. We do anything that we can that keeps us busy but in the same sense has us ready to go at a moment's notice to come out there and save somebody's life if needed to be," said Harrison County EMS Asst. Chief of Operations Steve McIntire.

Even if you try to make things as normal as possible, you can't guarantee that will happen. For instance, the second the turkey was out of the oven, EMS got two calls.
