The Guardian – My life as a paramedic: when every second counts
The radio comes to life, alerting everyone to a time critical job. The tone of the dispatcher is urgent, a tone only heard when circumstances are dire. It’s just a mile away from us.
“General broadcast, all units on talk group one. 25-year-old male, multiple stab wounds, immediate assistance required, any vehicle available closer than one running from 10 miles away, please press priority or go green mobile.”CONTINUE
