Blake, portrayed by actress Liv Tyler, is accused of performing some very questionable medical procedures, including inserting a chest tube with suction tubing on a picnic table and performing intubation an awake pediatric patient while off duty.
Not missing a beat, the Austin EMS Association said in its own Facebook post they will represent Blake and push to have her credentials reinstated.
