    Default My crew is gonna be on NBC's DATELINE

    Just wanted to give you guys a heads up that 3 of the guys in my group, that went to Mercy/Lindy Boggs Hospital, 2 days after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, has been interviewed by DATELINE. The show is gonna air sometime in the next couple of weeks. Don't have a confirmed date, as of yet, but I'll let you guys know when.

    If you guys followed my installements of what we did/happened down in New Orleans, I never did finish the last day we were there. On wensday of that week the storm hit, was our worst day there. Me and 7 other guys evacuated almost 700 people/patients/staff, from this hospital. The trip there was a horror show, we were in a La Wildlife and Fishery's boat, riding down Canal St, running over phone booths, the tops of cars, and yes.......BODIES. We had no choice but to hit them, because you couldn't see them until you were right on top of them. It's something I thought I'd never see in my life time as a firefighter/paramedic. But, you'll hear the stories on Dateline. I was asked to come and do the interview, but due to USAR training I was in, I had to miss out. The 3 guys doing the interview are, 1.Firefighter/paramedic Chris Shamburger (my partner the intire week.) 2. Firefigter Paramedic, John Giminich, 3. Capt. Kerry Foster (USAR team leader).

    All the pictures you will see in the story, are pic's that I had a chance to shoot, while we had a "little" downtime. I took a camera to document this day, I had too. Dateline contacted me for permission to use the pic's, which I granted. And no, didn't ask for any money. To me, it's not about cash, it's about people who lost everything, and the history of what this storm did.

    So, keep a heads up over the next few days or weeks on Dateline. Like I said, it should air sometime between now, and 2 weeks. We're suppose to be contacted by NBC on a for sure, aired date.

    JUST FYI Linkies!

    PS. There is a possible chance that we may get interviewed by Primetime Live on ABC. But, that's not a for sure thing, as of yet.

    And I guess I should add, the conditions at the hospital were a horror show within itself. And 1 day, I'll tell about it. When the time is right I guess.

    "20 minutes (late to work)? Shit. Last year I woke up three weeks too late.
    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    I'll definately watch that broadcast. I thought I had missed the last installment; I'm glad I didn't.

    Hey thanks for the heads up. Will be watching for this one.

    I can't even begin to imagine what it must've been like to witness that level of devastation.
