Even First Responders Get The Blues

We are winding down an eight-hour workshop on disaster risk reduction.  It's 4pm.  We're a mixed bag of EMTs, RN's, emergency managers, etc, and we're all pretty frazzled.

Instructor:  So what are some steps your jurisdiction can take to reduce the demand for medical resources after a disaster?

Fellow student:  Euthanasia.

I think I've been working in the funeral industry for too long. My appreciation for black humor knows no bounds, and this anecdote just about killed me with my laughter. Thank you for sharing!

That instructor needs some instructing on ending a seriously long meeting on a lighter note. But I LOVE the answer!
