The look on the EMT’s face when he sees a bedbug in the middle of the stretcher after transporting?

    Better than finding it in your bunk.

    Had a call in a very rural area of RI last week like this. Caller reported man down. Arrived to find male with a host of issues, mostly rather life threatening. EMS crew did fantastic job btw. In the middle of the incident caller adds he was spraying for bed bugs b/c they had an infestation recently.

    That was a show stopper for me. You wouldn't expect such a statement from the locale and distance from urban RI. Resulted in a rather hasty decon. Goes to show you never know.

    Awful little creatures, one of our stations was infested, see them all the time. Too bad they are migrating, hope you kept them off of you!
