πŸ’₯ What’s the Big Deal: 

A temporary staffing shortage at Honolulu EMS left seven of its 21 ambulance units out of service for a 12-hour period, affecting the response time and coverage of emergency calls.πŸ†˜ The shortage was caused by a combination of approved holiday vacation leave, maternity leave and illness among the staff. πŸ‘©‍⚕️EMS officials said they have a mutual aid agreement with other agencies to mitigate the impact of the closures, and they are working on an aggressive hiring strategy to prevent this in the future.πŸ™The shortage highlights the challenges and risks faced by the EMS workers, who are essential for the health and safety of the community.
