    Why?

    Because saving the life of others is better than trying to deal with my own.

    I Want To Be An Emt

    I think that being an Emergency Medical Technician would be an ideal occupation for me. I love public service and I love to assist others in need. I'm also a very action-oriented person and I have heard much about how EMT's get a rush from rushing a patient to the hospital and...

    What Made Me Decide to Be An Emt

    I've been an EMT for 10 years now and a volunteer member of my local Ambulance company for 11 years. I was inspired by my Dad, who is a career Paramedic for our town Ambulance Company. He has been involved with the fire department/EMS since he was a teenager. He started out as a...

    I'M An EMT

    I'm expected to keep people alive until we get to the hospital and I make less money than many fast food managers. I help train nursing students, at the local college, in emergency care and still get called "Ambulance Driver" by current nurses. I've seen many cops in line in...

    Three nurses are walking along the beach when they find an old lamp. One of the nurses rubs the lamp and out pops a genie! "For freeing me, I'll give each of you one wish," announces the genie. The first nurse says, "I want to be twice as smart as I am now, that way I'll be a...

    My Emt Story

    I became an EMT because of the EMT's that tried (in vain) to save my mother. I've always been interested in medicine, and it seemed like a logical choice. Now i can't imagine doing anything else, even though I've only been doing it about 2 years, I work as an EMT everyday, and...
