First-responders are some of the most important, if not most of all, workers in a city. They need the best quality equipment and vehicles because lives are on the line and in emergency situations, having up-to-date, working equipment could mean life or death. Almost instantly, paramedics turn on blaring sirens and lights and haul down the roadways to answer an emergency call. When arriving on the scene, immediately the patient is taken care of, prepared and lifted onto the height-adjustable stretcher for hospital transport. This exciting job is both scary, but rewarding for the paramedics. Sometimes, the people they save create life-long relationships with them because they are forever grateful, but also, it is great to have a paramedic as a friend to keep you and your family safe!
