I‘m an EMT & I love it. Sure, it can be kind of stressful at times, but it is rewarding rushing to a scene where someone is in dire need of medical assistance and helping them survive. Not only does it make me feel good to save lives, but the suspense of not knowing what situation each call will present keeps me on my toes. I can’t imagine how boring it would be to sit in a cubicle all day compared to this. That’s why I view my work less as work and more like helping those who are in need.
I’ve seen some crazy things, but we always try to be as prepared as possible. It’s crucial for us to have structured methodology & a lot of teamwork so things go as smoothly as possible. I always make sure to have quality equipment & supplies, as well as a great bag for organization & easy accessibility. This way, we can focus more on saving lives & less on avoidable delays.
