GENESEE COUNTY, Mich. — About five years ago, a swarm of wasps stung Paul Fortino outside his home. He's severely allergic.
His wife administered an EpiPen shot, but the Gaines Township supervisor was failing fast. She called 911. Moments later, local firefighters - from a mile or so down the road - arrived to administer oxygen.
