Some of our more seasoned EMTs. Dilworth Perkins, Shauna Cram and Bill Canning. We will be holding an open house to say thanks to our EMTs and wishing Bill the best after serving as an EMT for over 30 years, Tues. March 27th at 6PM in the hospital lobby.
It is said they run for money, well that’s not exactly what does the trick.
Oh they do get paid a stipend, but that is simply not what makes them tick.
Some say they have a deep and profound desire to help those in need.
I am sure that’s what brings them out, they want to help with that good deed.
Then their interest begins to grow and a flicker starts in their core.
They set up each scenario to cover every situation.
They are now on the roster waiting for the bell.
They have become adrenaline junkies, there simply is no doubt.
They grab their keys, throw on their shoes, while running down the hall.
The first one to the shed opens up the door,
Warming up the coach then waits there for two more.
Adrenaline helps them focus as they calmly make their plans.
The patient’s ride to KCH is about to begin.
They restock the coach, clean her up, fill her tank and make her run ready.
To home or work or back to bed it’s never quite the same,
We appreciate the time they gave, and lives helped saved that day.
Thank you for the time you give and your lives you choose to share.
