One in a series of humorous short stories about Jonothan Byrne, an Intensive Care Paramedic responding to emergencies in Brisbane, Australia (3,041 words). The books can be read in any order as the number in the title refers to the codes used to dispatch ambulances:
After starting the shift with a patient who had nothing more serious than a broken little toe, Scotty assures Jono that the day can only get better. That is, until they get dispatched to Carseldine Meadows, the caravan site from hell.

Great story telling.
Such a great author. The writing is witty and funny and the tales interesting. I’ve read lots of Harry’s books now and love every one of them. Yes I would highly recommend his books.
A must read for Paramedics and frontline service workers
As a frontline emergency worker I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Quality writing combined with an accurate insight into the humour and banter emergency services staff utilise as a coping tool to balance out the pressure related troughs and peaks of the job. Everyone has a different perception of what constitutes an emergency and this is beautifully illustrated in the readings. Will recommend to colleagues - thanks for brightening the day!

What a read. Brilliant story. Loved the sardonic humour. Look forward to reading more about ambos Jono and Scotty on the streets of Brisbane: "C'mon, let's dance."
