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

Students identified difficulties typical in this placement

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)
