Two paramedics say they felt unsafe, when they were called to the Melton Rec Reserve on Saturday to treat an injured Melton South footy player.

They left the scene around 4pm, returning at 6.20pm with a Melton police escort.

Concerned parties from both sides got in touch with Steve McGhie from the Ambulance Employees Union.

He says paramedics have a zero-tolerance policy to harrassment, abuse and threatening behaviour - and the incident send a message to bystanders who verbally or physically attack emergency workers.
