Female rescue workers

by admin on February 16, 2015

An anecdote from /u/ShallowBasketcase:

[I] imagine the firehouse gets a call about a fire, and the female firefighters are all "ooh, we're gonna have to bring at least one of the guys along to lift the hose."

I'm not a firefighter, but women at my job are always doing this, despite the job requirements being very specific about the whole lifting thing.

To end this on a positive note at least, the one time I called 911, the first person at the scene was a female EMT who lifted me off the floor onto the gurney thing her partner was slowly rolling over to me. Then she helped him carry me to the ambulance and lifted me inside while her partner got in the drivers seat. The moment she did that, I knew I was going to be alright. Because she wasn't driving.
