District Chief Nemuel Gutierrez-Diaz shares the benefits of being bilingual as an EMT with EMSA.

“We do have a large Spanish-speaking community here in Oklahoma City. Being bilingual and being able to communicate; it’s awesome because you’re able to communicate with these people and you get the straight answers from the questions that you ask and not have somebody interpret for you.

“So I can directly get the answer that I want to get because some people, when you ask them a question to translate, some words can get lost, or they use the wrong word to translate and knowing that, ‘Hey, this is what he said’ versus what I think, ‘this is what he said.'”
