Lucy has been an EMT for 30 years now. First working in Barstow, California for an ambulance company for 7 year, and then going to the California Highway Patrol where she worked 8 years. She worked as an officer at both El Centro and Lake Arrowhead. Lucy has retired from the CHP and is Captain of an EMS squad in Haines, Alaska. They respond with all types of equipment such as snowmobile, rescue boat, small plane or helicopter. Due to the weather conditions, they can have a patient for over 24 hours.
