Warwick paramedic there to help when it's needed the most

FOR first-year Warwick paramedic 22-year-old Lizzie Cole, being a part of the region's emergency services is about being there for members of the community when they need help.

"It's not always about the big headline-grabbing accidents,” she said.

"Most of our day-to-day is spent assisting the local community.

"Helping someone up after a fall or being on hand to offer support and medical expertise at a farm accident or health scare.

"Our job is to be there for everyone, regardless of situation or background, and for the most part the work we do is greatly appreciated.

"I love this job, the team here and the work we do.”
