Dual Role Personnel

Hello everyone,

    I am trying to ascertain what sort of dual/multi-role personnel we have working in pre-hospital care, specifically critical care and trauma.
    I am a paramedic and firefighter and have issues with my ambulance service who, for no specific reason as yet, dislike my role as a firefighter.
     Are any of you in a similar position or do you have a blissfully harmonious life of dual role leisure.
   Would anybody be interested in an organisation representing those people who do have potentially conflicting or multiple roles e.g tactical firearms officers, MERIT teams, SAR winchmen etc.  The idea being to pool some form of resource for making sure that such unique and specialised individuals can have a proper impact on procedure, prevent political interference and share ideas?
    Look forward to hearing any thoughts on this. Though not specifically related to a trauma case individuals like me are constantly having to reassess incidents from several angles with the potential to not only intervene medically but to provide specialist rescue techniques that could ultimately imrpove outcome.

  Thanks and kindest regards

  FF Tug Crumpton SRpara.
