Imagine what it must be like to attend a fatal accident in which you know the victim; or to pull a baby out of a fire who is dressed in the same style of pyjamas that your child wears; or to have to knock on a stranger's door and tell a wife that her husband has been murdered, while in the background, her children are preparing for a slumber party. Imagine chasing a naked man through a five-star resort; being escorted through a seedy establishment by a six foot four transvestite; or assisting a drunken woman who has somehow fallen into a shopping trolley and become stuck. Just Doing My Job tells the stories of the unsung heroes of Australia's emergency services. Those who are just doing their job, protecting, saving and serving. Most people see nothing more than the uniform. These are snapshots of lives and events that will give the reader a better understanding of the men and women behind the uniform.
