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.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger? If you would like to help back our mission of reporting on fact-based news, then please consider helping to support us financially.
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.
