Props To Our Emergency Service Workers

Mon Jun 05, 2006 7:45 am

Yesterday I witnessed a nasty car accident in Phoenix. The driver of one car was ok (but really shaken up) and the driver of the other car, an older lasy, was in a pretty bad way - lots of cuts/bleeding etc and shaken up. There were a lot of people who stopped to help and the emergency services turned up in less than 5 minutes. I've never been so relieved to see & hear the blues & twos coming down the road.

Car accidents are not a pretty sight at the best of times, especially if there's a lot of blood. Whilst I had the luxury of being able to walk away (after I had helped as much as I could and the E services were on scene) the E services obviously had to stay and clear up the mess. I know they're paid for doing this, but it really must be a challenging job dealing with that sort of mess day in, day out. Especially if the accident(s) are caused by people being irresponsible.

So a non-patronising 'thanks' to our emergency service people who go around clearing up other people's mess. Your work is highly appreciated.

Thanks BristolFlyer I will pass this on to my Husband - A Paramedic who I could not be more proud of for what he has to face day in day out. Where would we be without them !!

Anyone in the medical field gets my "pat on the back."

The things they have to go through and see on a daily basis just boggles the mind sometimes.

Thank you very much, and it’s greatly appreciated when people take a moment to say thank you. I am a full time EMT in a very busy area around Boston and we deal with everything from headaches to shootings, it’s a great job and I love going to work everyday, the personal satisfaction of attempting to help people makes up for all the “stuff” we see each day! Again, thank you.
