We are asked to go into heated and possibly dangerous situations during medical aids where the family is up in arms and are upset. We dont have guns, we dont have vests,we dont have spray or cuffs. Our only defense is our fists and an oxygen tank, you got a whole belt of tricks+ the authority to use it.
Most of the time I don't even know if they are going to a call unless the drive by me or I happen to have the radio on scan. We only go if the call comes into the P.D first, which doesnt happen to often since F.D has thier dispatch. I don't we need to be going since we have a f/t F.D and they always tell us, were all set when we do go. If they need us they do call.
