Paramedics And Ambulance Attendants [NOC 3234]

Friday, May 6, 2011

Paramedics and Ambulance Attendants are group of workers who administer pre-hospital emergency medical care to patients with injuries or medical illnesses and transport them to hospitals or other medical facilities for further medical care.

Talking about paramedics, Peter Petrelli comes to mind. He is a major character in the successful TV series, Heroes. Aside from having extraordinary powers, he is a paramedic in that show. In the opening episode of its final season, Peter was using his powers in his paramedic duties, abling him to save so many lives.

Other than in that show, Paramedics and Ambulance attendants are not a glamorous job. Emergency services are on call 24/7 so they have irregular working hours. And every situation is almost always a matter of life and death.
