We took a short EMT course to ready ourselves for the accident scene. (John Zimmer's EMT 101)

On a ride along with actual paramedics I saw a man who had been hit by a car. Obviously, I couldn't do anything but observe. But to watch the pros in action was quite exciting. They're pretty intense guys when they work and have absolutely no room for error.
