as a matter of fact we do take to offense being called just mere "Ambulance Drivers," we are professionals, certified and regulated by the state. EMTs put there lives on the line everyday no matter the situation. as an EMS worker myself, I have made a mistake before and accidently ran a red light in a non-emergency sitiuation, just by being distracted by something as small as a flicker of light. and also working for transport companies EMTs do encounter Emergency situations that call for lights and sirens, we are not merely a "taxi service" we save lives too! I have been involved in EMS (fire, rescue, and transport) for 9 years and I am proud to be a part of something as great as the EMS Community!
