Friday Link Roundup

Is it just me, or has it been a slow week for EMS, fire and police oddball news and tech? One "weird news" webpage I checked out had horrifying items like a guy who drowned in a river and some kids that drank bleach. Personally, I don't think those stories fit the lighthearted tone of a what a "weird news" site oughta be. But maybe that's just me. Let me know if you heard of anything funny or uplifting that has happened in the last week and I will amend this list. In the meantime, here are a few items I managed to scrape together.

BEAR-iatrics has come out with a stair chair designed to move obese people. It's called the BEAR Stair Chair. I don't know if they came up with the fun, rhyming name first and invented something to fit it or what, but it seems like a real life saver.
I almost forgot! now has a Tech Support section. You may have seen our Toughbook repair videos on YouTube. Now we are working on guides with text and pictures to supplement some of our videos.
Check out how one department used a viral recruit video to find their new police chief.

Edit: Here's a fun story. A man fell asleep while robbing a house. I guess burglary is tired work!
