    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...
