I've never heard of this before. Willacy County EMS (the county we live in) has discontinued service until further notice to specific towns/areas. It does not include our town, but the nearby Port Mansfield. I didn't realize EMS ever said they wouldn't respond to a 9-1-1 call. It seems to me that they should evacuate any area that cannot have rescue crews in place so that individuals with health problems would know to go somewhere that will still have medical aid. What if a person has a stroke or heart attack during this storm? They are just out of luck. Scary thought! So glad our town is still receiving service so that our elderly are taken care of in their potential times of need.

Willacy County said they will never endanger their rescue crews to go to the aid of another person. Hmm...
