Critic of ambulance driver draws fire

Regarding C. Wright's Aug. 23 letter about reckless ambulance drivers, I am appalled this letter made the newspaper. First, we are not ambulance drivers; we are emergency medical technicians and paramedics. We all take the emergency vehicle operations course every year and are not immature drivers. The reason the driver being referred to failed to notify the drivers when he first made it to the light is because he had just received the call. It is not like we have a crystal ball in the truck to let us know when an emergency is going to happen.
