Just recently, I saw an Emergency Medical Services vehicle (ambulance) sitting at the fuel pump of a convenience store, the crew hurriedly refueled. In a small community with limited resources, when calls come back-to-back, and transport times are extended – it happens despite the best planning. Even though the situation was out of their control, I know how that crew must have felt knowing someone was waiting on them. But in retrospect, the crew knew the limitations of their vehicle, had a plan, and executed it. Overcoming challenges in training often relies on that same diligence in planning.
