July 8 is the first ever International Paramedics Day, and on this occasion two paramedics from the UK are proving they can be good at their job – but not good on camera. Dave Tamarro and Joe Cartwright from Luton Ambulance Station couldn’t stop laughing as they filmed a video about what it means to be a paramedic.
Their crushing wheel, shared on facebook, Cartwright shows that he can’t get any words out as he starts laughing at every attempt.
“Hello everyone. Welcome to Luton Ambulance Station,” says Tamarro. Before he can introduce himself, Cartwright laughs, which makes Tamarro laugh.
Finally—after several takes punctuated by laughter—Tamarro is able to explain that the first International Paramedic Day is July 8, and he asks his colleague, “What’s it like to be a federal?”
“It feels really good to be a paramedic,” Cartwright says before laughing again. “I don’t know why I said that. I can’t stop saying, ‘It feels good.’ I’m sorry!”
The clip was shared by the East of England Ambulance Service, or EEAST, NHS Trust and gained widespread attention online.
“We received thousands of wonderful messages about Dave and Joe’s efforts to get their message across for International Paramedics Day,” EEAST CEO Tom Abell told CBS News. I know they were both surprised by the response.
“We felt it was important to mark the first International Paramedic Day on Friday 8 July to celebrate the work of our dedicated crews who work so hard to support our patients and our communities.”
Created and organized by International Paramedics Day College of Paramedics in England, as well as professional paramedic organizations from around the world.
July 8 was chosen because it is the anniversary of his birth Dominique-Jean LarrayAccording to the College of Paramedics, “this man is often called the ‘father of modern emergency services.’
The organization shared several other videos from healthcare workers on July 8 to mark the day. Marcus Bailey, Chief Operating Officer of EEAST: he said in a video. “It’s amazing the amazing things everyone does every day. It’s so special.”
“Like 32,000 other people in the UK, I’m a paramedic” Graham Clark says, paramedic and chairman of EEAST’s LGBT + network. “Being a federal is important to me. It gives me the privilege to be with people in the best moments of their lives, but also to make their worst moments a little easier or bearable for them.”
