WOW....what a fabulous day. I learnt how to drive an ambulance at high speed and then brake...we went out to the back country and on a gravel road....and I have to confess was feeling quietly nervous. What an experience and what a feeling of relief that:
1. the vehicle held together
2. it actually stopped without skidding or flipping
3. my passengers (all ambulance people) survived.
I have sooooo much confidence now in myself, my fellow volunteers and my vehicle.
We had a slight interruption to the day...5 ambulance volunteers, 1 paramedic, and a runaway tyre down Willmott Avenue. A passerby stopped the tyre with his leg and unfortunately for him he ended up with a very painful leg injury...but he was a hero and no doubt saved another person, or car from serious injury...Lucky for him though, we were on the scene in less than 2 mins and between us all managed to give him the best attention any "one" person has ever received.

Wow...that was some "skid"...
Feeling pleased that we all survived
