In a ranking of tough jobs, providing emergency medical services has got to be pretty high on the list. EMTs have to demonstrate both technical skill and emotional composure in unpredictable crisis situations, where life itself is often at stake. And they’ve got to function calmly in the chaotic environment of an ambulance hurtling along the road.
Each year, I have a chance to thank the Transcare ambulance crews that work in New Rochelle by recognizing Emergency Medical Services week. It was a pleasure to welcome our local EMTs to City Hall this morning.
