“At this point, my life, and my partners [sic] life is worth more to me than my license… Jump in front of my truck and your gettin [sic] your [expletive] run over. STRAIGHT FACTS,” according to a report by Boston 25 News. “They don’t wanna play crazy with this chick, Im [sic] so much better at it.”
Mark Brewster, president and CEO, of the ambulance service, said he took “immediate action,” after becoming aware of the post. He declined to say what action, citing confidential personnel matters.
The EMT told the station her comment was taken out of context. She said she wrote the post after seeing other posts on social media that showed ambulances, fire trucks and police cars set on fire and vandalized.
“Some of us deal with what is going on with this pandemic differently,” the EMT added. “Some try and make light of bad situations by saying stupid things randomly.”
