Most people don't think of the burden emergency workers have. If we make a mistake the public and brass are on us like flies on poop. Most of the time we are doing an incredible job making an incredible difference without any recognition. This isn't about being rewarded for what we do, it's about realizing the burden and pressure we're under to be perfect 100% of the time. I guess when lives matter nothing less than 100% can be tolerated but not everything is a life and death decision.
Be safe brothers and sisters...
