(MENAFN Press) September 18, 2012- Brooksville,Florida-
It is an occupation that is filled with heroes, but if often goes unrecognized; the paramedic or EMT. These are the people that save lives every day, but often the recognition goes to the more glamorous positions, such as surgeons or firefighters. This isn't to say these occupations don't deserve a lot of credit, but paramedics are often the quiet, unsung heroes.
With the week that brought the 11th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks, it is a time, if there is ever a time, that many paramedics will get the recognition they deserve.
The Atlanta Constitution Journal published a blog this week, thanking those people that keep us safe every day, the public safety officers, on whom we depend.
This is a week that many Americans are giving thought and recognition to these safety officers and first responders, said a representative for the career site, ParamedicTrainingHelp.com. While it is great to recognize these quiet heroes this week, they should really get recognition every week, because without these people, you aren't even going to be able to make it to the hospital to receive treatment.
ParamedicTrainingHelp.com is a website that is dedicated to offering career advice on how to become a paramedic, and provides everything from information on a paramedic's job description to a paramedic's salary.
When people go into this line of work, they're not doing it for the money or the glory, said the site representative. They're doing it because they have a genuine love of helping others, and they want to spend every day of their life trying to help and save lives. It's a very noble profession, despite the fact that it's often forgotten or overshadowed by more visible professions.
In addition to being a honorable profession, the site creators at ParamedicTrainingHelp.com also tell visitors that it's a great time to get into the healthcare field, in any capacity.
The healthcare industry is a growing industry, compared to many other careers that are sluggish or dying out, said the site representative. Healthcare is growing by leaps and bounds in this country, and while not everyone has the desire to be a doctor or nurse, we want to show people that there other, equally important ways to become involved in healthcare, while also helping change lives every day that you go into your job. Careers in healthcare aren't about the traditional doctor/nurse occupations anymore; with the industry growing as rapidly as it is, and with such huge projected growth, there are a number of ways to have a career in healthcare, and feel great about what you're doing at the same time.
I hope that we take the spirit of 9/11 and the gratitude we feel for these public safety officers, and let that carry on to every day and every week of the year, said the site representative. These men and women who work in these fields, such as paramedics, deserve our sincerest gratitude every day.
