EMS SECOND SHIFT Women are becoming Emergency Medical Technicians and Paramedics at an increased rate but yet according to Bureau of Labor statistics, men are a majority of EMS workers (about 64%) in the industry.

Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/6460175 Day shift is basically the amount of work women do regularly in addition with their normal paid job. When they come home after their normal working shift for example 9 to 5 pm. With the economy the way it is, it had become necessary for the tyical household wife to start careers to help support their families in these times. The general idea of day shift or work 9 to 5pm so that the woman could get the kids off to school in the morning, go to work, and come home and make dinner for the family. So even though woman take on careers the general expectation is still to maintian house hold duties like cooking, cleaning,, and other chores. 3.7% national average "In a survey of girls 9 and 10 years old, 40% have tried to lose weight." 53% of American 13-year-old girls are "unhappy with their bodies." This grows to 78% by the time girls reach seventeen. At least 8 million people in the United States have an eating disorder According to Time magazine, 80% of all children have been on a diet by the time they've reached fourth grade. How does this affect women? What types of female
bodies are most often
seen in the media? What about men? Recent studies are addressing the affect of images on men's perceptions
Studies show that men become just as dissatisfied as women.
These individuals struggle with with the idea of what a man should look like. In the "Exposure to Males in Advertisements Leads to a Decrease in Men’s Body Satisfaction" Amy L. Baird and Frederick G. Grieve tested the reaction of males when exposed to advertisements. They Found That.... Viewing male models showed an increase in body dissatisfaction in participants.
Participants who viewed only common product advertisements demonstrated no change in body dissatisfaction. Images that cause body dissatisfaction are everywhere Magazines
Internet What Causes This Dissatisfaction? Media content and dissatisfaction are linked because individuals compare their own appearance to the highly attractive models who pervade the media. During this comparison a man will evaluate himself and isolate the features of his own body that do no meet the standard portrayed in the image which leads to dissatisfaction. This is a Fairly New Event That has Progressed Through the Past 43 Years 1970's 1980's 1990's Present Over the Past 30 Years the Male Body has Taken a New Shape It has become more naked and muscular Society as accepted this image as a proper representation of the male body A large number of males do not fit into the ideal male body shape that has been adopted. Males who get trapped by this belief of an ideal male body -Believe it will help them attract women more easily. -Men link body image to virility and the ability to attract women on the beach -Often in advertisements you will see a man with a muscular body being embraced by a beautiful woman. -Images like these etch themselves into the minds of men and a connection between an ideal male body and the attraction from women is made The Dark Side of Media on Male Body Image Some men that feel they have to change how they appear can succumb to behaviors that are very harmful to them. Women have been the main focus when it comes to disorders related to altering one’s body due to dissatisfaction, but men are just as susceptible to unhealthy disorders. Men that experience dissatisfaction have been linked to a number of negative consequences. Development of eating pathology, obsessive exercise, depression and low self-esteem occur Muscle Dysmorphia (Bigorexia) -Complete opposite of anorexia where men do not see their muscles as large enough no matter how they look. -Improper dieting, steroid use, and compulsive exercise. -With the focus primarily on how the male body looks men can turn their dissatisfaction into negative energy that might make themselves look like that of a male model “We live in an empire ruled not by kings or
even presidents, but by images” -Susan Bordo Works Cited: "Fast Facts."

and 55,300 local police officers were women. In 2008, across 62 reporting federal law enforcement
agencies there were about 90,000 sworn officers, of
whom approximately 18,200 (20%) were women. Men in Fire Service As of the year 2000, women make up 47% of the U.S. labor force. But over 97% of persons in career fire fighting were men. Fire service has been male dominated since the fire fighting actually began. The general idea of men are stronger and tougher than women is one of the reasons why you see so few women in the fire service. But as years go on the women's side continue to increase little by little. Men in Law enforcement Men in the United states count for over 68% of staff in today's Law enforcement Women can take the Heat Men in EMS When EMS involved after WWII their the job became more then just taking someone to the hospital. And as the jobs required for the job changed, so did the people with it. Men have always been the emergency medical services main gender staff members. But as the years went on women became becoming EMT'S and paramedics in high numbers. In fact, it is becoming more common to see a man and women as partners in the same ambulance then two of the same sex in an ambulance as partners. Recent poles have shown that men in most areas are only taking up to 60 to 65% of staffing in most ambulance corps and the number is dropping. In one company in particular Stonington Ambulance Cops ( SAC) their chief and commander are both female. In fact they have only 5 male members as of last year 2012 and 16 female members.
