The Macomb Fire Department isn't just focused on flames. In 2014, firefighters responded to 1,774 incidents. That works out to be more than 4 runs a day.

Fire Chief Andy Taylor said more than 60% of them were requests for medical services. The entire crew is EMT certified and able to provide basic medical care on-site.

An Illinois Congressman has introduced legislation that he says will help alleviate an upcoming doctor shortage.

McDonough District Hospital's biennial surveys have shown district residents would like to see an ear, nose and throat specialist on staff.

Director of Public Relations and Funding John Maguire said the hospital will meet that need next year with the arrival of Dr. Jeff Sparks. He will join the hospital in the summer of 2013 after the completion of his residency.

Maguire said Sparks will bring an excellent mix of experience and the latest medical expertise.

He said, "The fact is (he) has a great deal of training and we're delighted that Dr. Sparks will join us."
