I actually beg to differ. As I also work in EMS on my time off, I have seen first hand the extra burden placed on local hospitals from this. With the lack of nurses, doctors, and paramedics in this province, it doesn't take much to overwhelm the medical system. But are entitled to our own opinions.
There's something to be said about not having all your eggs in the "fire season" basket. It might actually as a wake up call for some operators that they need to diversify their work a bit. Reminds me of when oil and gas prices plummeted.
You could also look at the hydraulic cut-off switch on the collective. Try cycling the switch on and off a few times, or pull the switch out and look at the solder joints on the back. I have had a loose or broken wire give similar issues in the past.
