It takes a special kind of person to do EMT/paramedic/rescue work. My dad was an EMT on the local department for around 14 years. Since it was a volunteer department, when the call came, wherever you were, you went to the call or station. My sis-in-law has been a paramedic for 10 years plus. They've both seen a lot but something that close to home would be really, really hard. Professional detachment does wonders but at some point it hands off to personal feelings.
