Whenever a new member of the emergency services family joins up, then it’s always a wondrous and magnificent occasion.
This morning we had a message via our Facebook page from someone who will be joining the thin green line in Feb next year!
For the new recruit, then gone are the monotonous days of simply doing the same things over and over again in the typical civvy job.
And, in this case, our newly entered-oppo will find that no two calls are ever the same.
Some calls will be uplifting whilst others will be truly saddening.
So, it’s only right that those oppos who are already on the front line in Emergency Operation Centres around the country give their advice on what NOT to do in a light-hearted attempt to indoctrinate this soon-to-be oppo into the world of the emergency services.
So in true emergency services tradition, if you work in an EOC then add your ‘advice’ on what NOT to do in the comments below.
Keep it light hearted and lets get a few smiles based on the satirical wisdom of the ‘old sweats’ who know exactly what NOT to do when starting in the role of 999 call handler…..
