‘I have mixed feelings,’ says Alessio, 20 years old. He is one of 8000 paramedics who have to be deployed to support the nursing staff. It's the largest troop deployment for an emergency since World War II. Alessio has been on duty for most of the last year. ‘I did a full tour of duty so I'd never have to serve again.’ How does the man from Mettmenstetten deal with the fact that only a few months later he had to be dressed in Tenue green and move in again- in case of an emergency?
