It is important to note that no Salisbury ambulance was called to the scene. However, Command found it necessary to utilize and ambulance further away in the County of Worcester out of Berlin Station 600. No county fire departments want to use anyone from Salisbury.

What the heck is going on with the Salisbury Fire Department? I guess they aren't liked by the Volunteer Departments in the County. I agree that it has to be the leadership in Salisbury. Both the Fire Department and the Mayor and Council.
