Overview

The first thing that you need to keep in mind when you plan to become a worker in the emergency services is that, you must be selfless. Even though you chose this career without any special intention, it needs to be noted that at some point of time, you would have influenced other person's life. I was a technician in a medical emergency camp for about four years. The patients who called me have affected my life in a great manner, knowingly or unknowingly, even when I did not really expect them to. During the training period, you will realize how this profession becomes an integral part of life, and the other emotions and memories involved in the process.
It feels different when your pager rings when you are actually on duty with some other work. The training period actually makes you prepare yourself mentally to take every other call. You may have a clue about the nature of the call, but it might turn out to be completely contradictory to what you actually think. Sometimes, I have attended calls that were made look urgent in spite of the fact that they were not urgent. I have been there when some people breathed last. A worker in the emergency services would be the last face any man would want to see. I just hope that I will be able to comfort people who are going to die any moment, and one must realize and look forward to comforting people when they are facing problems. It is always necessary that any emergency worker must be full of confidence and his confidence must always have a positive effect on the patients that come up to him.
At times, an emergency worker might be the first person who gets to see a kid that is new to the world. I still remember helping during the delivery of a child. This call was not any different from others, but I always wondered as to what that kid would be like now, and what it would be doing. Sometimes, I even start wondering what the other person who came to earth with my help would be experiencing now. These are not subjects in any of the classes that are taken; it is just a thought that is buried deep inside me. Knowingly or unknowingly, I have become a part of a person's life. The passion in this job is another thing that will influence people. With the right confidence, one can even save a person with the bleakest of chances to survive.
