Being an EMT has always been an incredibly rewarding experience. It’s one of those things where you go into each day without knowing what you’re going to be coming up against but you know that you’re there to help those in need. We’ve been doing the concert festival circuit for about 4 years now and I’ve got to tell you, you’ll see some of the craziest things out there from sun up to sun down and back up again.
I think the most surprising thing about it is how many people can push themselves until they are completely dehydrated. We want to make sure that you’re having a great time but a bottle of water now is going to keep you from hitting the dirt and then having us transfer you back to the emergency tent. I’ve gone through more saline bags in one weekend then I’ve gone through Band-Aids in a month.
