D.C. Ambulance in Presidential Motorcade Runs Out of Gas

A critical constant is a DC Fire and EMS ambulance, typically Medic 1, that trails behind in the event of a medical emergency. But on August 8, as the President and First Lady were leaving the White House to celebrate Mr. Obama’s 52nd birthday at the restaurant Rasika in West End, Medic 1 ran out of gas.
