Good morning

My name is Michael McGivern and I am a registered nurse & ambulance officer working in the very far north of New Zealand. I have a special interest in clinical education particularly in relation to pre hospital emergency care. I was very interested to see that you are employed as a nurse/paramedic. Would you be able to tell me more about your position and what your clinical procedures allow you and your colleagues to do. Would you have a spare patch from your service if I was to send you one of ours?
Please let me have your address.

Kindest regards

Hello Joffry,
I have just been looking at your photos - nice selection. I would like to add photos from some of our work, but we aren't supposed to. How are things in the Hague? Our ambulance manager left us about 1 year ago and moved from New Zealand to the Hague to work and live. I am collecting EMS patches to display at our ambulance station. If you are interested in trading with me, please let me know.

Belgische "transplant". Ik sprecht mere dan ik schrieven....
Sorry for the horrible Dutch. It comes back to me pretty quickly when I am in Belgium and Holland but I am definitely rusty. I studied in Leuven for three years but I am originally from Upstate NY (near Cooperstown NY - home of the Baseball Hall of Fame if you are into baseball).

We've been quite slow this week, no surprise. Same at the fire dept, only running about 5 calls a day the past week.

I've got some pictures of your ambulances I took a few years again while at the beach in Schvenigen ( probably wrong spelling) I'll have to find and post for you.

thanks for the reply--
