Better Moments from 2012

Thank you for indulging me this year by clicking over here. It is a strange world I inhabit most days, and my reactions to it that I get on paper, or screen, can be a bit disturbing. Having read many of the previous years posts I came up with some of my better moments.

A career in Fire/EMS is difficult, physically demanding, heartbreaking and at times disturbing but ultimately rewarding. Those unexpected moments when you know without a doubt that you have just saved a life, or touched one in such a positive way that the person who called for help got much more than they ever expected makes all of the misery disappear.

I am fortunate to have experienced more of these moments than I deserve, and am better for it.

I think there is room for all of us in the future of EMS. Just like not all nurses like the ER, not all paramedics only want to run the sickest patients. Personally, my favorite calls are MCIs, a close second is probably the little old lady low fall. We can specialize. If you don't…
