"I'm at the point where Iím quite sad, living on the coast and working for the ambulance service"
I'm at the point where Iím quite sad, living on the coast and working for the ambulance service, Iím now able to recognise an ambulance siren and a fire brigade siren and also ours as well. So if Iím not on pager or my pager hasnít gone off, and I hear our siren for, the lads normally stick on the air horns as well if theyíre trying to get through traffic, then I know itís them and I ring up and Iíll find out whatís going on. So I guess the air horn on the Landrover, and Michaelís a bit over-zealous with the use of that just to make sure everyone knows heís coming to get out the way.
