... to me! Today marks the 7th year of my employment with American Ambulance. Seven years of working some crazy shifts, taking a few interesting 911 calls in amongst the standard stuff, and oftentimes wanting to pull my hair out as I try to figure out where on earth I am going to possibly fit another call on the spreadsheet without pushing my road crews totally over the edge. A former co-worker once compared this job to a game of Tetris and he was pretty spot-on!
Obviously American wasn't my first job and working EMS has certainly been an eye-opener at times but in spite of the craziness and the stress I can honestly say that I like my job; the reason for that being I have met some truly wonderful people during the course of my career and they are what make the job what it is.
I never set out in life to be an Emergency Medical Dispatcher but I am and I can't think of another place I'd rather be doing it than where I am in spite of the occasional grumbling! So let's see what the next seven years brings, shall we??
