Paramedics & Fire at DL Hotel

Does anyone know what was going on yesterday afternoon at the DL hotel? We saw a lot of medics, fire trucks, first aid cars and an ambulance outside the hotel. Hope everything was ok...

Why are these threads started every few days???Accidents happen, people get sick or medical assistance, etc. These things happen every day in most major cities.

Maybe because DLR isn't exactly a "major city" and a lot of us feel a sense of community about it. If there were rescue vehicles in my neighborhood I'd be concerned enough to ask about it. I think devoted DL fans are somewhat protective over each other and worry about someone who needs emergency care while at the DLR.

Because people are curious and worried. It's human nature. AND they don't happen every few days; there was one yesterday (or the day before), and today's. That's it in recent memory.

Just this last week in my town there have been a few incidents I've been behind, and I'm CURIOUS. Why were all the exits for me to get home so backed up? I couldn't pick up DH at the train station because of it, and had to go up to the next town and backtrack on side streets rather than wait in a long backed up line. There was nothing going on at the concert venue (last two times I saw lines of cars like that it was for Bieber last year, and Britney Spears 13 years ago). DH said that there were police cars and ambulances in front of the train station, but he came out as they were leaving. It was mystifying. And there was an incident the day or so before that had me equally curious.

The day after that, DS and I were at a coffeeshop and a group of policemen came in. Plenty of other citizens were stopping to talk to them, so I did too. Alas, they didn't know what was involved in that (though I did get to hear a firsthand experience from one of them in a really awful tragedy that had just happened here in town, as they spoke with other citizens while DS and I worked on his schooling).


It's human nature to want to know what happened, to want to send good thoughts out into the universe for those people involved.

I understand the concern but I raise the question as I have a number of family and friends who are police and fireman who see a lot of horrific things while doing their jobs to protect and administer first aid to the public. I get that it is human nature to be curious about accidents, however I wish people were a little more sensitive to the safety personnel who could be experiencing their own post-tramatic stress. Thanks.

How does posting a question on DISboards affect their safety or stress is any way?

I worked as a first responder for a few years, so was obligated under HIPAA to not disclose any information to anyone about a patient or incident. While passers by/witnesses aren't under the same legal obligation to not disclose that information, I would only hope that if I was ever involved in a public medical emergency, no one would ever post about what they saw on an Internet forum.

I don't think it affects anyone or in away asking on the DIS, but I do know random people asking questions while medics or EMTs are on site is frowned upon..... Which the OP did not do :-)

It really is concern vs. nosy, but that is not my place to make that judgement.

A fridge caught fire in a room on Friday, so that was why the fire/police/medics on Friday, no clue on yesterday...

I don't think that answering a "what happened" question violates anyone's rights to confidentiality. If I had known what had happened, I would not hesitate to share the answer here on this board.

I've been on this board for years and years. I've yet to see any thread where the OP asks about having seen emergency response at the parks answered with any personal or identifying information shared.

Also, I've never seen anyone ask or post about someone's emergency in anything other than a concerned way.

Well as a firefighter I can say this about the whole privacy thing. While some info is not given most fire, police and EMS calls are logged and made public in news papers and websites. Someone asking if anyone knows what happened at a hotel the other day in no way violates HIPPA laws or causes us increased stress( I have PTSD and do not get upset by people asking me Q's) I believe the purpose of info sharing websites( kinda like this one) is to ask and answer questions, since no one asked for anyone's name, DOB, medical records or whether or not the person was on the dining plan( a touchy subject on here!) that no harm or foul was done. Just one mans opinion and professional thoughts.

But a valued opinion, thanks!
