A Moment In Time
23 minutes | Mar 29, 2011
Steve has had an epic struggle. Everyone who has seen him is very surprised that he is still alive. They have not written him off as a lost cause but he has defied the odds and is not dead. However, he has a lot a fighting to do with a long road of recovery ahead of him. His first goal (if he was able to think logically about it) is to last the night, hour by hour. If he does not hold on, the hard and dirty work of many would have been for nothing.

Paramedic Natalie is having a bad day. In her eyes, she is doing her job to the best of her ability. She is getting to the calls quickly and treating the patient, often in difficult circumstances. Her boss does not agree. He thinks that her high powered rapid response motorcycle is spending more time on its kickstand than what it is under lights and sirens. With the day that she has had, the end of the shift is not going to be pretty. At least she has a date with 2 overseas paramedics to look forward to at the end of the shift!

In this chapter, Paramedic Natalie needs another pair of hands in a confined space. Looking at the emergency workers on the scene, Natalie could only see one solution. This would mean teamwork with a person that she did not know. At that stage though, Natalie could not be choosy. What was she doing there, anyway? Isn't her job to get there as quick as possible, start treatment and then move on to the next job when the crew arrives?

Rescue Operator Katrina to put her recent training into action. While the rescue training was extensive, it could not cover every scenario. This scenario was very real. It was going to be a difficult rescue and Paramedic Natalie has just made it that little bit harder, dirtier, smeller and cramped for Katrina by requesting her pair of hands, specifically.

Police Officer Caroline has been awaiting this moment for months. She is working her first shift as a fully trained Police Officer and along with her partners Leila & Nicole, she is speeding towards Central railway station.

Natalie is a motorcycle rider who does not care about the stopped traffic, speed limits or red traffic lights. If you are in severe pain after an injury or an accident, you could do a lot worse than to have paramedic Natalie and her fast motorcycle speeding to come to you. It is a nice day in Sydney for a motorcycle ride and Natalie is certainly getting into some Thursday afternoon action!

Katrina is waiting at the fire station and hears the noise that she has been waiting hours for - an alarm for her. She finally has a job. This is no ordinary job that she will not remember next week.

Will Katrina be able to cope with the pressure? Will Station Officer Renee be able to guide rookie Rescue Operator Katrina through the incident so Katrina is not added to the list of people who go in as a rescuer & need rescuing themselves?

Judy's routine was relatively simple on this particular schedule. See a platform, stop. Go. See another platform, stop. That might be making it sound very simple. Judy made it look easy. However, controlling this big passenger carrying machine with only her left hand took a lot of training, skill & experience.

It's a nice day for Judy to be able to drive around and around and around. But first, she has to find her vehicle and then make sure that it is ready to go, that everything is how it should be. You just can't turn up to work and drive straight away, can you?
