Next Meeting: October 4, 2014
Plan to attend a meeting of Triangle SinC at 1:00 PM, at Earth Fare in Brier Creek. Some of us arrive early for a bite of lunch in the deli/cafe. Guests are welcome. At our next meeting: Max Patterson, EMT-Paramedic with Durham County, has life-and-death stories to tell. He'll also set us straight on what they can and cannot do. For example, paramedics can recommend someone be involuntarily committed. Did you know they really hate driving with the lights blazing and sirens wailing? If you have questions you wanted to ask a paramedic as it relates to a story idea or murder plot, submit them ahead of time to firstname.lastname@example.org, and Max will do his best to answer them.
