If ever there were an opportunity to show the world exactly what EMS is, this is it.
Now is not the time to create controversy.
Now is not the time to complain.
Now is not the time to demand respect.
Now is not the time to degrade the fire service.
Now is not the time to do anything but answer the calls to the best of our ability, treat our patients courteously, competently and proffessionally, use our training, use our equipment, use our talent and get the job done.
Do that, and in the days to come your actions will roar like thunder when pay parity is brought to the table.
Complain, compare and pontificate and your sacrifice will be forgotten as soon as this crisis ends.
Talk is cheap. Action speaks for itself.
Stay safe people, and as always, do your best.
