The Cleveland Clinic and the Cleveland Fire Department: partnering to solve America’s Social Security crisis:
CLEVELAND — A fire engine that would have been the first truck sent to the fatal fire on Crawford Road Tuesday was never sent because its firefighters were at the Cleveland Clinic moving an obese patient.
The Clinic says:
“Due to transport needs of multiple patients, the Clinic requested an ambulance from Cleveland EMS, a service they have provided to Cleveland Clinic in the past.”
No fire or EMS official could recall ever receiving a similar type of call from the Clinic, Flask said.
