(Morris, Ind.) – A longtime volunteer firefighter was on a call when he suddenly went from helper to the one in need.

Ed Scheele, a 41-year volunteer with the Morris Volunteer Fire Department, had a medical emergency after being called out for a possible structure fire on April 24.

Luckily for Scheele, he was surrounded by trained personnel at the time.

After a two-night hospital stay, firefighters and EMS personnel from Morris Fire, Sunman Fire, Rescue 20 and Batesville Fire welcomed Scheele home on April 26.
