Who am I....Ambulance Dispatchers Creed Empty

This hangs in our office at work. The author of it is unknown. I am an Ambulance Communications Officer - This is who I am...



I am the voice that calms the mother into breathing life back into her infant son. I am the invisible hand that holds and comforts the elderly man who woke up this morning to find his wife of fifty years has passed away during the night. I am the friend who talks the disgruntled teenager out of ending her own life. I sent help when you had your first automobile accident.

I am the one who tries to obtain the information from callers to ensure that the scene is safe for those I dispatch, all the while anticipating the worst and hoping for the best. I am the psychologist who readily adapts my language and tone of voice to serve the needs of my callers, with compassion and understanding.

I am the ears that listen to the needs of all those I serve. I have heard the screams of faceless people I never will meet nor forget. I have cried at the atrocities of makind and rejoiced at the miracles of life. I was there, though unseen by my comrades in the field during the most trying emergencies. I have tried to visualize the scene to coincide with the voices I heard. I usually am not privy to the outcome of a call and so I wonder....

I am the one who works weekends, night shifts and holidays. Children do not say they want my job when they grow up. Yet, I am at this occupation by choice. Those I help do not call back to say thank you. Still there is comfort in the challenge, integrity, and purpose of my employment.

I am thankful to provide such a meaningful service.
I am a mother, father, sister, brother, son or daughter.
I am where you need me and still here when you don't.
My office is never empty, and the work here is never done.

Who am I?

I am an Ambulance Dispatcher, and I am proud.


Blessed be,

Lisa

I may not be perfect....but I am always ME!

The woman came from a man's rib. Not his feet to be walked on, not from his head to be superior but from the side to be equal, under the arm to be protected and next to the heart to be LOVED.
