It’s okay to be bothered by things that we see every day in Emergency Services… Whether you’re an EMT, AEMT, Police Officer, Fireman, or even a Dispatcher who only talks to the people on the scene… You are human we feel emotions… sometimes we can’t handle them on our own. Reach out to someone your partner, your co-workers, a friend… or a professional. It’s not weakness… it’s being brave you’re facing your emotion and your fears. Trust me it’s better that way.
When an officer asks for help who has tools to help defend them self asks for help we don’t question it for a second. When an EMT or Paramedic who is in a jam with nothing but maybe a heavy object that we’ll get cremated for using in defense asks for help we question them. Why are you asking for police? Why do you need help? Are you still moving? Did you stop? Is this really an emergency? Do we need to make this a priority? Lets waste three more minutes making a phone call.. and when they have no answers we may as well do something about it.
