What to expect

Paramedics provide rapid, emergency medical response and specialised transportation to the community. Each day a paramedic may respond to a number of call outs - not all of which will be emergencies. A paramedic’s work also consists of non-life threatening cases, transporting elderly patients and patients who have scheduled hospital treatments.
