‘Twas the night before January When all through Control The excitement was building Almost like a drum roll Dispatchers dispatching Calls for help being made And upon the big table A large buffet was laid! As we drew closer to midnight It got really bizarre All resources were clearing At the scene or ER 999 calls stopped ringing The standby points full All the additional staff Must have found it quite dull! But they couldn’t complain Being paid time & a half To sit around chatting And having...

If Only People Knew

Written by RSS Poster ambcontrol999 on the 25th June 2015 at 9:40 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

If only people knew How much things have changed How demand surpasses resource It will never be the same again If only people knew The type of calls we take People who really need us And calls that are a mistake If only people knew That to call 999 Is a life or death scenario Not due to too much wine If only people knew How many times we hear ‘My mate is ill & vomiting They’ve drunk shit loads of beer’ If only people knew That cuts and grazes aren’t for us Make you own...

“So, tell me why you want to join the Ambulance Service?”

Written by RSS Poster ambcontrol999 on the 11th May 2014 at 7:36 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

Written by RSS Poster ambcontrol999 on the 06th January 2014 at 5:09 - Posted in Ambulance Blogs

Oh look at the time There’s too much on my mind And my body clock’s all out of sync So what shall I do At a quarter to two? I know I’ll go get a drink! I come back to bed With my head full of dread At the countdown to my first alarm I was so very tired And now I feel wired Long term can this do any harm?
