    Thank you Mr Spencer. What difference does the name make? If this was someone you knew you would have been notified by now. As a family friend I would like to say... This lady was a wife and mother as well as a friend to many. She will be greatly missed. As for the personnel notified. If you have never worked in the EMS you shouldn't say anything. Most volunteer staions have dedicated people that take time away from their families and jobs to be on call to take care of you and your family in such a situation. The circumstances involved in this crash took her life, Not the failure of the system. God Bless Ms Denise and her family. PS... I am a proud wife of a Firefighter/Paramedic.

    Well, Anonymous at 7:06PM, radio pages go out to "all" volunteers for that agency and even if some are working they still answer the call.Don't be so judgemental unless you've been there and done that.

    I don't understand why this story is being pushed to the bottom and why has a name not yet been released???

    Has the family been notified? Can we get a name yet?

    makes me wonder if there was adequent personnel notified of the incident when it happened. even being in front of the fire dept, its still a volunteer company and the incident occured while most people are at work. just alot of gray areas about this.. my prayers to the families
