We had just gotten back from a call, I pulled up by the station and saw a piece of something on the side of the road. I thought to myself “that doesn’t look like a good thing to run over, I’ll pick it up later so no one runs over it”, so I went around it with the front wheel best as I could, but when I swung out in the street to back in I ran over it with the back tire.
Get backed in, open the door and was greeted with a not so lovely sound, “SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS”…you could hear a big air leak.
I looked at my partner and said “do you hear that?”
He went to go check it out, and I went to go pick up that piece of trash,or whatever it was, because I knew exactly what had happened. I have no idea what it was other then a mixture of plastic and metal.
We have a second ambulance but it was currently out of service. 😛 Called the maintenance guy, couldn’t get a hold of him, and it was getting late…
Thankfully he got back to us within 10 minutes, and was able to come down to the station to put on one of the spare tires. Yay!
Word of advice: Don’t slice ambulance tires. 😛
Last night was first my very first class…it went exceptionally well and I’m looking forward to the next one!
Thank you so much for your prayers…I appreciate them so much!!!
