Most of us enter this field hearing from our instructors about “the big one” that we can expect. It can be a motor vehicle collision, an active shooter, a plane crash, a building (or multiple buildings) collapse, or an explosion.
We learn about it.
We train for it.
It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.
And then “when” comes we act upon it…
The heroism shown today by emergency responders and volunteers was extraordinary

… honestly, I don’t think I could have said it better myself.
Thank you Boston EMS for your professional and heroic response to yesterday’s tragedy.
