Ambulances in my neighborhood

I live on an Indian Reservation in Minnesota.  Recently our local newspaper ran a story that stated our county ( entirely within the reservation) had the highest Vax rate per capita in Minnesota.  

 

Fast forward to a couple weeks ago.  In one week, there were ambulances at the three houses on every side of me, the fourth being unoccupied full time.  One neighbor is dead, although that person had preexisting conditions, another neighbor appears to be okay and the third I don't know.

 

What are the odds of your neighbors all having a medical event needing paramedics in one week!  That wouldn't even happen in a nursing home or even a hospice residence! 

 

The obituary section has doubled in size with four people under the age of 40 dying suddenly and one elderly person dying unexpectedly.  I see the increase around here but no one seems to be batting an eye.  My sister an hour away and not on the reservation also states that her local newspaper obituary section has increased.

 

This is getting scary to me!

Glad someone started this topic.

In the part of Essex where I live, there has been a massive increase in the number of ambulances flying past our home with wailing sirens.

I can honestly say it's at least trebled from how it was a couple of months ago.

Yes a lot more round here too. And I see more of them when on the roads.

Glad someone else commented on this. This is a ruse - they are attention seeking and manipulating perceptions.

 

I personally know someone who worked in one of the emergency services for 30+ years and he told me it was not uncommon for him and his colleagues to switch on the siren so that the traffic would part for them, and they would get back for their tea break.

 

True story.
