Congratulations for your decision to help others! Each of us has taken the step to become educated and increase our service to others. The world is a better place because you selflessly help others.
The theme for this year is “EMS Strong!”
Because we will often put others before ourselves, we sometimes don’t take the best care of our own body. We have to pick up many larger patients and carry them around corners, down narrow halls and up or down stairs. All of this takes a strain on the one body that we’ve been given.
Ours is a short career or avocation. Often cut short because of some of the things that we see, but increasingly cut short because our patients are not getting lighter and we end up with injuries.
Let’s take this EMS Week and work on getting stronger; starting with the core.
Thank you for all that you do to help others! You really are making a difference in other’s lives!
