Fort Dodge is an interesting place

This is a new billboard that was put up in Fort Dodge. I had to stop and take a picture of it, mostly because I find it slightly disturbing. It's right next to a billboard about preventing teen pregnancy (our county has the highest teen pregnancy rates in the state of Iowa...amazingly high). Anyway, I don't know if you can tell, but this is a picture of two Fort Dodge firefighters in hazardous material suits leaning over a dead body.

Why do you think Fort Dodge would need a billboard like this? I'm only asking...

Is it suggesting that they're overworked? Or a reminder about how they always go above and beyond (which they do, and thank you!) I guess I never pictured haz-mat suits in the "hero" category, you know?

I'm not sure, Faith. I just wonder why they would be approaching a dead body in maz-mat suits in Fort Dodge. What strange viruses are lurking here in the midwest?
