EMS, Firefighters And Police Receive An Unnerving Threat

On September 18, a threatening note was found outside of an ambulance dispatching facility in Camden, Delaware. The note read “Give all your employees Bullet prof vest we’re After all EMS, Fire and police good luck A** H****." Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier wrote an email to The News Journal stating “Threats to law enforcement are not uncommon whether it be verbally or through social media. We take these threats seriously and will continue to investigate any threats made to first responders."

The note was left on a trash can outside Heart to Heart transportation. Dover Mayor Robin Christiansen said, “This is really, really sad. Having been a fireman for many years, I think it is unconscionable that you would put a threat out there to the people you would call for any sort of emergency.” Christiansen added “It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but nothing surprises me anymore." Fred Calhoun, president of the Fraternal Order of Police in Delaware, told The News Journal “I find it unnerving that now they’re targeting EMS and fire, because they do a really completely different job than us. They are not armed. They go out there to save lives every day. Sometimes with us, sometimes without us.”
