When you're in a rush to a scene or back to the bay how close to the speed limit do you stick to? If it's a 50km'h area (which is residential) would you go far over 60?
My mum told me when you see an ambo with lights on and going slow, does that mean you're working in a tricky condition ?
Broadly speaking if you're coming to my home or work site (not for me) how can I set you up for success / help you?
Finally how the god damn heck do you not get personally involved with every person you serve (and switch off at the end of the day)?

Thanks. I had an ambo team come to my house a few weeks ago, my lad was vomiting and had trouble breathing. I got his area clear of toys and general (kid) junk so they could walk in and do what they had to do.
It obviously wasn't the right time to talk with them about how to prepare in the future.
Also thank you for helping your community. While you meet people on shitty terms, you're helping.

Mega thanks for your response and for your efforts in your community. It really is a wnderful job. You generally deal with people on terrible terms.
How's your bed side manner going ?

It would be pretty helpful to be a people person in that role since you're servicing people (and not machines). If you can help make a sticky situation less...awful then you've done something terrific.
I personally have never needed EMT support. I've not spent 1 single day in hospital, but I totally get that what you do is highly valuable.
So, when I see an ambo driving a bit slow with the lights on, is that something you guys do when you're working on a critical case, assuming it'd be a bit hard when flying down the road ?
