It was great work, rarely a boring moment. Everyone was great, it was a ton of fun, and I learned alot.

long hours, anytime of the day, the night-long ride-alongs were hard to adjust to.

Students identified positive aspects of this placement:

The people. They are all happy to have you as a part of the team and willing to help and answer questions when needed. I felt comfortable by everyone and I ended up feeling like part of their 'family'. (2004)

Students identified difficulties in this placement:

It is difficult to contact people because of the heavy work loads. It's difficult to make good friends because there are so many staff people you deal with. (2004)
