We would like to hear about your experiences with emergency medical care.

Why did you become an emergency medical care provider? Or did someone help you when you were in need of immediate care? Were you on a mountain top or at the bus stop? Were you on a tropical island or in the safety of your home? Did you get hit by a stroke or did you come to the rescue of children in a warzone? Were you in a car accident or got stuck in traffic riding the ambulance?

By talking about it we want to spread the awareness how broad the working field of an emergency care provider is. This specialty is needed in the most extreme or ordinary circumstances everywhere on the planet and also in your home. 

It is very important that you get competent and quick help when you are in a life threathening situation.
