I had the opportunity to interview an E.M.T. The E.M.T. I

chose to interview was my friend Matt from the Highland

lakes squad. I chose to interview him because it is easier for

me to talk to someone I know than someone I don't know,

and also I wanted to find out whats its like being an E.M.T.

from a teenagers point of view. Q: Why did you become an

E.M.T.? A: I enjoy helping people, and I felt that I wanted

to be able to do more than just basic first aid and cpr. Q:

What does it mean to be on call? A: It means that if the

pager goes off you are the person that responds to the call.

You can't leave your area because you have to stay available

if the pagers do go off. Q: How does being an E.M.T. affect

your personal life? A: It doesn't really affect my personal life

too much. The only time it really does is if the pager goes off

and I'm on call then I have to stop what I am doin and

respond to the call, or if I come across an accadent I have to

stop and help. Q: In Vernon what kind of accadents do you

usually see? A: The most common type of accadent I see is

people havin trouble breathing, or people who can't breath

things like that. Q: What is the worst accadent you've ever

seen? A: The worst accadent I've ever seen was a car

accadent where there was a victim who couldn't remember

anything even after I told him the same thing over and over

again he couldn't remember what I told him. Q: What

happens if the victim is someone you know? A: I try to treat

the victim like any other victim, but I'm more nervious about

messing up somthing or doing somthin wrong. The victim

though will usually feel more comfortable when someone

they know is there with them. Q: What do you do at the

scene of an accadent? A: We treat the victims, and transport

them to the hospital as fast as we can. Q: How do you feel
