When called to serve another’s hour of need.
Their missions are grim and training takes years
Expecting no fanfares and, least of all, cheers.
No restraints on gender or shade of one’s skin
They’re a dedicated group and fraternal within.
They work in concert with their firefighter brothers,
Serving the community, and often…many others
Their movements precise, tending a victim is swift,
When lives are in peril, their mere presence is a gift.
Unique is their concern for saving a life.
A God-giving calling in this age of apathy and strife.
It’s a labor of love… that’s plain to see,
Always there when you need them… the EMT —– By an Unknown Author
