At the beging of September I moved into a new area here at Southwest Ambulance in Salt Lake City. I am now in the Sugar House area of the city working on Southwest 3, which is good because it is as far away from the homeless shelter as you can get in out company and it's not as busy as my last station so I have more time for important things like reading, watching TV & movies, sleeping and playing video games.
The funny thing is our station is an old bakery. Our company never took down the bakery signs from off the building. Either they don't want anyone to know that it's an ambulance station or they are to cheap to worry about it.
We have had people come looking for the bakery. I offered a lady a half eaten loaf of wonder bread once, she declined my offer.
See there is an ambulance hiding back there.
And this is what our station looks like on the inside. We actually stay up in the loft where there are bedrooms a kitchen and a bathroom. The down stairs is just empty right now.
So the Sugarhouse Bread Company may not sell much bread any more, but we are big on emergency medical care these days.
