  1. I didn’t see the part when the rescue teams were timed on going through the victim’s pockets and finding cash, credit cards, drugs and condoms and passing them out to co- workers.

  2. Great demonstration of the rescuers skills.
    Extrication is always the tough part of Emergency Medical Techs duties, it is also fun to show off it off too.

    EMTs FOREVER!
