This shabby sign was spotted and snapped by one of our followers and then sent into us via our Facebook page. It is (currently) located in one of the windows of a hospital in Norfolk…
The question is: As an ‘ambulance driver’ (aka paramedic / EMT / ECA etc) do YOU get annoyed, agitated and/or offended when you are referred to as ‘ambulance drivers’ or could you not give two foxtrots either way?
It’s a bit like police officers being referred to as police car (or van) drivers). Or Firefighters being referred to as Fire Engine Drivers?
As emergency ambulance crew, then if you spotted this note then would it pee you off a little bit because it is placed in a hospital window?
I mean, we expect that perhaps civilians might get confused as to the role of medics, but not a hospital surely?

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
