When your patient leaves the hospital in good health it makes all of the countless hours you spent volunteering in emergency services worthwhile.
Recently, I happened to be at the right place at the right time and as a result have received an immense amount of media attention and credit. However I was just the first, first responder. The successful outcome of this event was a joint effort, and I want to thank all of the responders who answered the call for help.
Without these dedicated EMS, Fire and PD personnel, many of whom I have proudly serve side by side with for years, such a successful outcome would not have been possible.
