How do you support/manage with your spouse venting about their work in EMS (or similiar fields)?

If you are the one working in EMS... What is the best support to recieve while venting about your work?

Hmmm. Guess someone should reply to this, and since I'm here...

When I'm telling my SO or friends about my day, my week, the incredibly frustrating patient, the 'good' job, the one that went pear-shaped etc. the only thing I need is some active listening. Someone who listens intently, asks the odd question, and is interested. I don't need major affirmation, sympathy, or anything else. I think what I do is interesting enough, and I hope other people do to. Having the chance to tell the stories is what helps.
