In memory of...
Never to forget
Dedicated to the men and women who serve so faithfully and diligently,
bringing compassion and life-saving emergency medical care
to those who are in need.
Special dedication to Darrel Riley, Paramedic.
Sorry if we woke you in the middle of the night
But someone in your neighborhood is fighting for his life.
Sorry if we block the road and make you turn around,
But there's been a bad wreck with dying children on the ground.
When you see us coming you'll understand
Let us have the right-of-way - someone needs a helping hand
Sometimes a child is choking, sometimes a broken leg.
Sometimes a heart stops beating, and when we get there it's too late.
So if you see us crying when we think we're alone
You'll know we had a "bad" one and we're feeling mighty down.
We don't do it for the money -- you know we don't get paid.
We don't do it for the glory but for a life that might be saved.
Somewhere deep within us our souls are crying out
"We're here to help our neighbors in their hour of pain and doubt."
God gave us something special to help us see you through
We do it 'cause we love you, and we care about you too.
