Two Firefighters SAVED A Baby Girl’s Life- Now Getting Suspended….

Rules exist for a reason and it is certainly logical for companies and bureaus to expect that people follow these policies. However, there are clear times when commonsense should trump policies. Case-in-point: two firefighters have been suspended for violating protocol in order to save the life of a baby girl.

Here you go…

From TheBlaze:

Two volunteer firefighters in Stafford County, Virginia, were suspended following their attempts to save an 18-month-old girl who was having a seizure last Saturday because they used their fire engine to transport her to a hospital.

Captain James Kelley and Sgt. Virgil Bloom from the Falmouth Volunteer Fire Department in Fredericksburg were suspended for their actions last Saturday after they were the first responders to answer a call coming from a little girl’s father near a McDonald’s restaurant, according to WTTG-TV. The father had reported that his 18-month-old daughter was having a seizure and required a hospital, and according to Kelley it would have taken at least 10 to 15 minutes before the nearest medic could arrive at the restaurant and provide assistance.

That’s when the two firefighters decided to take the matter into their own hands.

Kelley and Bloom took the little girl with them into the fire engine and began the trek to Mary Washington Hospital, and Kelley said that the toddler immediately was put on oxygen in the fire engine and arrived inside the hospital’s trauma room within 13 minutes of the time the call had first come in, WTTG reported. Although an ambulance requested to meet the firefighters near the hospital to finish the journey, Kelley ultimately denied the request.

Let’s be very clear: these firefighters were not joyriding, they were saving a life. We must be willing to break from our closed-off thinking as a society to occasionally consider intent.

Meanwhile, those who routinely break the rules for horrid reasons on a federal level are not only going unpunished, but are being rewarded.

Lois Lerner gets a hefty pension, nobody has been fired for the VA scandal and Hillary Clinton is being considered for a job promotion to the highest office in the land.

But, no; these firefighters need to learn a lesson…
