”We get cats out of trees, we go on gas leaks…shootings…infectious control cases. We go to fires, we go to collapses…we're probably the only agency that is consistently on every type of incident. That's just the nature of the beast.” That’s Dabney Hudson, president of Fire Fighters Local 36, which represents nearly 1,700 DC fire fighters and first responders. These are folks who deal with crises every day, so Union City asked Dabney yesterday for advice on how to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. “One of my buddies at the international lives up near Meridian Hill Park and we were texting back and forth on Friday and he’s like ‘You wouldn't believe it. There's 200 people out here in workout clothes, drinking wine in the middle of the park.’ The social distancing thing is huge; this stuff does spread. It is no joke.” Listen to Dabney on this morning’s Union City Radio and we’ll have more of our conversation on this week’s edition of Your Rights At Work, today at 1 o’clock on WPFW 89.3FM.
