  • BEING A MEDIC…  on 7/9/16 one of our trainers and medics was on his way to work when he saw something going on involving a lorry.  As he got closer he could see what looked like a person under the lorry and he decided to stop and help and was able to help before the emergency services arrived.  The emergency services arrived on scene and our medic handed over and then left, not really knowing what then happened to the person afterwards.  It occurred to me, a medic in training, that being a medic is not a 9-5 job.  You never really switch off or clock off from being a medic and you want to be able to help people if you can, despite the time or place, it is your moral responsibility and kindness that keeps you going.  And it occurred to me, that as a medic, you will not always get the happy ending.  Despite this, I want to further my skills and  I hope that one day, if needed, I too can help someone, even in a small way, should they need it.  I’m so proud of the team that I work with and the things they do, and feel lucky to be part of the team.  If you would like to learn first aid, become an appointed person or even train to become an emergency medical technician, call Singletons on 01522 531112.  You do not have to wait for your work place to put you on training, we run many open courses for you to enable to put yourself forward to further your skills.  Call 01522 531112 now for more information, and you too could help someone that needs it.
