What are paramedics ?
paramedics ......
Paramedics are on call 24/7 to help service users all across the globe. Some service users except the care of the paramedics and are grateful for what they do. Others refuse treatment,make racist remarks and make rape claims, because the paramedics have touched them to try to help them.
