I had the opportunity to interview an E.M.T. The E.M.T. I
chose to interview was my friend Matt from the Highland
lakes squad. I chose to interview him because it is easier for
me to talk to someone I know than someone I don't know,
and also I wanted to find out whats its like being an E.M.T..
Q: Why did you become an E.M.T.?
A: I enjoy helping people, and I felt that I wanted
to be able to do more than just basic first aid and CPR.
Q: What does it mean to be on call?
A: It means that if the
alarm goes off you are the person that responds to the call.
You can't leave your area because you have to stay available
if the pagers do go off.
Q: How does being an E.M.T. affect your personal life?
A: It doesn't really affect my personal life
too much. The only time it really does is if the pager goes off
and I'm on call then I have to stop what I am doin and
respond to the call, or if I come across an accadent I have to
stop and help.
Q: In Vernon what kind of accadents do you usually see?
A: The most common type of accadent I see is
people havin trouble breathing, or people who can't breath
things like that. Q: What is the worst accadent you've ever
seen? A: The worst accadent I've ever seen was a car
accadent where there was a victim who couldn't remember
anything even after I told him the same thing over and over
again he couldn't remember what I told him. Q: What
happens if the victim is someone you know? A: I try to treat
the victim like any other victim, but I'm more nervious about
messing up somthing or doing somthin wrong. The victim
though will usually feel more comfortable when someone
they know is there with them. Q: What do you do at the
scene of an accadent? A: We treat the victims, and transport
them to the hospital as fast as we can. Q: How do you feel
on the way to a call? A: I usually have an adrenalin rush, and
my body feels like its going 100 times faster than normal.
Thats about it though. Q: Do you like being an E.M.T. and
why? A: Yes, I enjoy being an E.M.T. I like the feeling I get
from helping others that are in need of help. Q: What
happens if you are at a call and another call comes in? A: If a
