Icy blooded, steel natured, beast capable of doing the near impossible with almost nothing to work with in the worst conditions for the least possible pay. Given twice the social responsibility of law enforcement and none of the authority, while firefighters are running into the burning building, paramedics take up residence in the burning building and start unpacking boxes and paying rent.
Stepping out of the ambulance and surveying the scene the paramedic sighed and said, "Get my coffee, it's going to be a long shift. "
