ok im a volly firefighter in my town, but if i see a wreck that has just occurred i stop to help until the police, trooper or fire trucks arrive (not chasing calls just finding them) no matter where i am, however lately it has come to bite me in the ass, going throught the city yesterday a lady nailed a tacoma when the light turned red and she didnt see him stop, she had 2 children, me being beehind the lady stopped asked them to pull into the parking lot of a store we were infront of due to bad traffic, made sure all occupants were ok and waited for pd to arrive because i was a 1st responder/witness, and the lady starts yelling at me that shes been in enough wrecks before we dont have to wait for police and that i need to leave before she files a complaint...ok complaint numero1
going down the highway today i notice 3 vehicles in the median with nothing bud hazards on, i slowly approach and notice a lady walking around her vehicle inspecting damage and proceed to slow down, cut on my lights and commence to slow down, then i hear tires screech behind me and a car swerve (ive taken a good 1/8 a mile to slow down (4football feilds length as a unit i know a lil better) i then cut through the median due to not being able to slow down enough because this guy almost rearending me and turn around in the grassy median, as i get out of the vehicle an offduty state trooper commences to yell at me saying i am going to cause a wreck and that i shouldnt stop for something as little as somebody hitting a deer and asks my name my dept and says he will file a formal complaint
i have stopped a wrecks where people were trapped or seriously injured but i never get any praise for this, i only get in trouble for stopping to help so i am considering stopping to help people all together, it upsets me dearly because i love helping people, but i dont want to get in trouble with my department either
so what should i do?
if you were my cheif/captain what would you do
