When you spend endless hours on the front line of the emergency services saving people’s lives during a busy shift, the last thing you would expect when you return to your car in order to make your way home to your loved ones, is for someone to have trashed your vehicle.
The stresses of putting yourself into harm’s way, in order to potentially save the life of a complete stranger are testing enough, let alone finding that someone has decided that your vehicle should take a beating.
But that is exactly what happened to a Paramedic who works for East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Having finished an incredibly long and incredibly stressful shift, the Paramedic returned to her private car which was parked on station property only to find that some delinquent had decided to seriously damage her own private vehicle.
A post on the East Midlands Ambulance Service Facebook page said:
“Our staff work tirelessly every day and night to ensure the people of the East Midlands are safe, they do not expect or deserve to have their personal vehicles damaged whilst on shift.
Our paramedic from Newark Ambulance Station was at work on Friday night when her vehicle was vandalised. She returned back to station during the night to find that her vehicle had been attacked; both wing mirrors had been taken off, the window wiper had been removed and the trims on both sides of the vehicle.
Wendy Hazard, Ambulance Operations Manager for Nottinghamshire said: “I am very saddened by this act of vandalism to a member of staff’s vehicle.
“Our dedicated staff work extremely hard to deliver the best service possible for patients and for them to return to station and find their personal belongings have been vandalised is upsetting. We will be working closely with Nottinghamshire Police to find who is responsible for this.”
We are asking if anybody has any information to please contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101″
Someone out there will know who did this, and we are asking anyone who knows the identity of the suspect to search your conscience before phoning Nottinghamshire Police on 101 in order to ‘do the right thing’.
No member of the emergency services deserves to have their property damaged by a mindless act of thuggery. Why would anyone want to damage the private vehicle of a medic!?
The idiot who carried out this vile act would have known that the vehicle must have belonged to someone from the Ambulance Service, as it was parked on EMAS property!
We really do hope that our readers will share this article with their friends and that maybe, just maybe, someone will have enough decency to contact Nottinghamshire Police with some information that will lead to the arrest of the suspect.
