dc.description.abstract From its European founders through to the "Chicago School" and up to the contemporary concerns of ethnomethodology, the study of work and occupations has been a central concern of sociological research. Based on data collected by participant observation and unstructured interviewing, this study presents an analytic portrayal of the work routines of Emergency Medical Assistants in Vancouver, BC. Topics discussed include work routines, local understandings of events, and interrelationships between emergency personnel, their colleagues, and others. A series of appendices provides details of specialized language, researcher access, and the researcher's personal relationship to the field. en
