Cameras follow heroic ambos
Ambulance Australia, Ten, Tuesday at 7.30pm
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.
Lisa Wilkinson narrates.
