Cam­eras fol­low heroic am­bos

Am­bu­lance Aus­tralia, Ten, Tues­day at 7.30pm

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

THIS fly-on-the-wall se­ries fol­lows real life emer­gency sit­u­a­tions from the triple-0 call com­ing through to the con­trol cen­tre, to the am­bu­lance per­son­nel be­ing dis­patched to at­tend the call and right through to the paramedics on the road as they treat the pa­tient.

As the first to re­spond to ur­gent and emer­gency calls, paramedics must use all their train­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence to make split-se­cond de­ci­sions that can mean the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death as they step into sit­u­a­tions that can be emo­tion­ally fraught or phys­i­cally dan­ger­ous.

At 22 years of age, bub­bly and en­er­getic Gina (pic­tured) is one of the youngest paramedics in the ser­vice.
