As seen on TV
Just as a recap, this was the blog entry in question. Since then I’ve been on the scene and helped out at more than three other medical emergencies (for what little help I could offer) and proud to do so. Just did my bit and walked on. Oh, and just for the record, I’ve been threatened but no one has to date got to the point of assaulting me.
Incidentally; on our patch we now have a well established procedure where drivers who are taken unwell get their vehicle registrations put up on the mess room board and over the air so that we don’t book them. (This happens at least once a week) In addition I can name three of my colleagues who have done almost exactly what I did for the victims of heart attacks and other sudden serious malaises.
I know it’s fame of a sort, but I’d like to be asked if they could use the material first. Not that the cheap bastards ever will.
My response? Rest assured that any vehicle with a BBC permit or logo on it will in future be assured of my closest personal attention. Park legally guys.
