Diplomacy

Since law enforcement, fire and EMS have to work day in and day out with one another, it’s not uncommon to butt heads sometimes. I just want to remind all of us that in the vast majority of cases, the stuff we deal with is so stupid and so bullshit that it’s really not worth butting heads at all. Let things go. Remember our common “enemy,”* for lack of a better word. Remember our common goal of dealing quickly with these people, as painlessly as possible.

Save the disagreements for when it matters a little bit.

*In this context, the people who abuse emergency services. Don’t get all high and mighty.
