Taking a cue from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Quincy residents Jeb Heiman and Lindsey Kimzey adopted someone from out of the country. This isn’t your typical adoption, however. The couple adopted a dog named Intore from Rwanda.

Kimzey saw a photo of Intore posted on the Facebook page of a foster home for dogs in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali. Kimzey instantly fell in love with the pup and made the arrangements for the adoption.

Last Saturday, Kimzey and Heiman picked Intore up after her long flight to Los Angeles International Airport and brought her back to her new home in Quincy.

Why does your local fire department respond if you need emergency medical care? Why do they usually come with a fire engine in addition to the ambulance? Ever wonder what an “EMT” is? How about a “first responder”? And what about a “paramedic”? How do our local firefighters fit into these roles in Plumas County? And, perhaps the most important question, why is your local fire department even providing this service?
