I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the encouraging comments you’ve posted about Siren Voices. I feel quite overwhelmed by the positive feedback, and I really appreciate it.
I’ve been an EMT now for just a year and a half, (on the patient transport side for a couple of years before that). Aside from all the work-life attractions of the job, the real reason I think I’ll be in the ambulance for a while is the daily potential for drama.
Admittedly, most of the work is routine. And I know I’m more likely to write up something emotionally bloody rather than a drunk or an abdo pain, making it look more like a bad night in Baghdad than a Thursday afternoon in an English town by the sea. But even when the jobs are straight obs and nothing more, you can still have a good old chat, and look around for the little details that might distinguish a person or a place.
And if it’s really quiet – read a book.
So anyway – thanks again for reading the blog, and for all your comments. And a big thank you to Mark from neenaw for mentioning Siren Voices and pulling in the business!
