Firefighters called to same home 1,100 times

Posted: Updated:
Virginia Beach, Virginia (KWWL) -

Firefighters respond to the same home 1,100 times in three years.

An elderly man lives with his wife in that home in Virginia. He needs help getting in and out of bed twice a day.

"We are not in the home healthcare business. We are not here to provide non-emergency support," said District Chief Kenneth Pravetz from the Virginia Beach Fire Department.

The couple says they don't qualify for social services and cannot afford home healthcare.

Firefighters say they're working to get the couple connected with the appropriate resources.
