This could also mean that in the event that Dr. Forbes isn't available (day off, vacation), Carl would sub for him and Jim (or someone else if Jim is in the field) would join him.

Kudos to Carl for the news. 

Indeed! Poor Dr. Forbes gets worked to death!

Considering how hard he has worked over the past year with all the severe weather, he deserved this recognition.  Someone else has to help out Dr. Forbes as he can't do it all.  Carl Parker should be able to handle this job quite well. :yes:

If this is the case, why hasn't Forbes taken a much needed vacation? I'm concerned that man is gonna land himself in the hospital. He hasn't had a day off since February.

He has something called a contract, which spells out when he needs to be on air, and when he can take his vacation.

Tyler is right. He's always needed because of the recent severe weather outbreaks, and he may be needed a lot more because of hurricane season and stuff. When will he have a day off? no one knows.

Obviously Dr. Forbes can't take a vacation during the peak of the severe weather season!!! ;) Like Tyler said, he has a contract, and I think he knows when TWC wants him and why they have been using him so much. I don't think he is too overwhelmed.

If Dr. Forbes was getting overwhelmed, I'm sure all he'd have to do is tell management. They know he is at age and would give him time off. I'm sure he's working hard b/c he knows they depend on him so much, after all he is doing the career he loves. I'm was a little angry the other day when I heard him give an update, he sounded so tired, exhausted, and just worn down.

Yeah - it seems like he can't get a break at any time, since there's always the potential of some severe weather somewhere!

Did you know... the United States is the only industrialized country that doesn't mandate any vacation time at all?  In Europe, you get a minimum of four weeks a year, period.  And Europeans actually enjoy their vacations more, while Americans tend to think about how much work that's piling up for them to return to.

Carl returned to Day Planner for July 12th working with Heather so I guess he might still do a few OCM shifts a month.
