Samu 78 et Sapeurs-Pompiers des Yvelines


Yesterday evening, bored while in the doctor's waiting room I heard sirens. The firemen -les Sapeurs-Pompiers- who usually provide paramedical assistance, arrived first. Then a few minutes later the SAMU (emergency medical service for serious and life-threatening conditions such as cardiac arrests or strokes, with highly qualified doctors and paramedics) made its appearance. I hope whomever they came for made it. I am so thankful to these people for what they do that I thought I'd post these pics!

Hier soir pendant que m'ennuyais ferme dans la salle d'attente du médecin, j'ai entendu des sirènes. Tout d'abord sont arrivés les Sapeurs-Pompiers des Yvelines et quelques instants plus tard, le SAMU des Yvelines. J'espère que la personne secourue s'en est sortie et c'est l'occasion pour VDP de remercier tous ces pros de la vie!

oui, ils méritent que l'on rendent hommage et dire qu'il y a des c.ns qui les caillasses quand ils interviennent dans certains quartiers ,((

Michelle said...

I do hope those involved are well.

Nice nod to those medical personnel who indeed take on a large duty daily taking care of those in need.

Randy said...

Not a good sign. I hope it wasn't anything too bad.

Lowell said...

These people really are heroes, unlike sports and movie stars! Thanks for sharing!

A well deserved tribute. A Fire Chief once told me that he trains his employees by telling them that the people who they encounter and serve every day may be having the worst days of their lives.

Your version of what we call the EMS truck (emergency medical services) actually has doctors on it? Certainly not here. But then, by some standards, France has the best health care system in the world, or so I've read. My country is not in the running.

Dina said...

It is good to be thankful.

@ Bob: yes, doctors. They are called les médecins urgentistes, or emergency medics. And they do a really hard job.

Gunn said...

I hope all went well!
Yes, they do a very IMPORTANT jobh!!

Dave said...

The unsung hero's. France has a very good medical system, I remember one of our group of cyclist benefitted from it a few years ago. Very impressed.

Malyss said...

Oui, on est content de les entendre, ces sirènes là! et on ne les remercie jamais assez!

Cezar and Léia said...

Hugs and a nice day

I hope the patient was OK, sounds pretty serious. SAMU sounds like a good idea, get the smart people to the scene ASAP.

My life was saved by a firefighter when I was a baby. They are almost always the first to arrive to an emergency. I certainly appreciate what they do! Thanks for showing these photos today to remind us of their service. :)

Hopefully all ended well. These are the real heroes as Lowell said. I too am impressed that Drs. are first responders. Here one must wait to get to a hospital to see a Dr. Though I have to say our EMS folks are absolutely wonderful.

What a terrific homage! My sister is a doctor worked in these services -- I'm also thankful for what they do!

VP said...

We always hope they know what they are doing, and usually they do!
