Here's a Scary Thing

Road construction continues on Fairground street, the only access and egress route from our house. At any given hour of the day, you will see someone zip down our street, realize it is a dead end and do a u-turn in the abbreviated cul-de-sac.

Today, I saw an ambulance, lights flashing, siren screaming, do the same thing.

1. How could they not know about this construction since you both ends of Fairground are on major emergency routes and the construction has been going on for close to a year.

2. I would think Emergency Vehicle drivers would have to know how to get in and out of all the different subdivisions.

3. Hope the person inside the ambulance made it to the hospital!

That leads me to wonder about the fire department, which is basically volunteer. I am not sure how that works, but since we see tons of vehicles around town with "firefighter" on the license plates, do they need to drive themselves to the fire? Hope they have a better sense of direction than the ambulance drivers.
