Saving lives can be a risky business

Saving lives is part and parcel of a paramedic’s job, but they also need to consider their own safety by carefully assessing each situation, especially when heading into potentially violent environments.

As part of the Queensland Government’s Safe Night Out Strategy, new legislation means anyone who assault paramedics, nurses or doctors will face up to 14 years in prison.

While Bundaberg paramedics don’t face the late-night violence of metropolitan centres with large night club precincts, the laws are in place to reflect the seriousness of assaulting someone there to help.
