My friends and I are full-time paramedics with the City’s Fire Department. Whenever there is a nine-one-one emergency that requires medical assistance, my friends and I are sent. The job can be physically demanding at times, and every day can also be an emotional rollercoaster. My friends and I work hard and play hard. During the day, we are constantly running from one place to another. The only time we relax, is on the weekends. My friends and I often go hiking to clear our minds. Last weekend, my friends and I decided to go hiking at a new location. We were excited to see three large waterfalls on the trail. Things took a turn for the worse, and we wound up lost in the forest. We didn’t find our way out, until the middle of the night. In fact, the sun was almost coming up by the time we made it back to our car. My friends and I were almost hypothermic, and the outdoor temperatures were only 27 degrees. We turned on the heater in the car and tried to warm our bodies. I decided to put the heater on a medium temperature, so we wouldn’t shock our system. My friends and I sat in the car for an hour, with the heater running. By the time we thawed out completely, the sun was starting to come up. My friends and I thought we might surely freeze to death in the woods, and we were never so happy to see the lights of our car. Thank goodness we had plenty of gas, so we could run the heater for hours.
