EMS Week 2012 is finally over. Honestly, I for one am very grateful that the hectic flurry of events and chaos is done. Not surprisingly, I missed the NYC REMSCO Annual Dinner. At the event they played this video:
Yeah… I dunno. Besides seeing at least three ambulances in the slideshow that no longer physically exist (so those are some pretty dated photos)… again I’m not sure if this is the type of message we need to be sending.
It seems to reinforce the whole “Dark Side” tone from this year. Should we be portraying ourselves like the bad asses from Sons of Anarchy if we want the growing geriatric population to call us? I would think not, but yet here we are doing it yet again. Even worse, the “saved by the Governor in the 11th hour” REMSCO is doing it which makes me seriously wonder if they learned anything about perception during their near death experience.
Then again, maybe it’s because I’m getting old myself and this kind of juvenile “playing soldier” message doesn’t sit well with me anymore.
Or maybe I’m just ticked that once again, I didn’t get a freaking t-shirt.
You can decide for yourself.
