Hi All ...As promised awhile ago, here it the MCI short story I wrote at the end of last year...I have read it out on my YouTube channel (wear headphones)..I hope you like it...Please bear in mind, some of the ambulance terms will be different, because it is set in New Zealand. I'd love to know...
Some of you know me...but most of you probably don't...however, I just wanted to share something with you all.
I've just finished writing a short story for a writer's competition here in New Zealand...but the subject I decided to write about is a bit of a taboo EMS subject...PTSD.
I set the...
A sadly event for the New Zealand ambulance service...These incidents don't happen very often in New Zealand...but when they do...everyone in the service feels for the crews involved...
Hi Emtlife Members
I was told I have to put this thread in advertising, not that I am trying to advertise.
It is more of a give back to you guys. Some of you have known me for awhile...but I guess a percentage of the new members won't have heard of me, unless you have read some of the older...

I'm not sure why an FF and 3 Ambulance staff also had to be treated at this gas leak incident?
I just wanted to post this news article as a sign of respect for the first female/medic from New Zealand to be killed in Afghanistan, along with two other NZ soldiers. 'Lest we forget!'
It is not normal practice to have Advanced Paramedics at sporting events in New Zealand.
They are a bit thin on the ground to sit at such occasions, on the off chance that something serious will happen.
I also couldn't see such event management wanting to pay an advanced paramedic's wages...
After a few years, I've finally got the book I was writing published.
There are a number of you that know about it, so I thought I'd let you know it is now for sale, if you are interested in reading it.
It has nothing to do with EMS, although it has a few medical scenario's (so to...
I hope you are able to open this article link, as it is from one of our TV stations and there has been issues when I've posted links off shore before.
