Hi. I rode as a volunteer EMT for nearly 30 years before “retiring” (my whole family is career and/or vollie 1st responder), my FT occupation is a freelance writer. I write a monthly column in a trade newspaper about EMS issues – I am planning an upcoming column on EMS burnout and would love a few comments to quote (not necessarily identified): If you are or were an EMT or Paramedic, have you experienced feelings of burnout? Did you quit because of it? What do you feel are the strongest indicators of burnout? What contributes to burnout? What do you recommend responders do to avoid burnout?
Please comment below or send an email to ChelleCordero@gmail.com.
Thank you so much for your help.
