  4. EMT City 2nd sort of annual reunion

    I'd like to think this place started it all, though. The idea of EMS people coming to a place to not only bond, but also to mentor to provide advice from an academic perspective, instead of the ricky rescue perspective. It was the #1 largest influence in my EMS career, as it set up my foundation.

    Was just going through my Amazon EMS Wishlist and realized I had some real old books there with descriptions from a bunch of you guys. I think I must've asked for advice when prepping for medic school (or maybe I just kept a running list form the threads). Some from dusty, ridryder, firemedic1, outbach, and sjslennon, too. Funny, most of them I couldn't afford to buy the and forgot them, but came around to re-finding and buying a lot of them on my own years later.

    You did not post in the wrong thread, when did you fly for lifeline? I was in Clinton Mo from 1992-1997, 2007 and then again in 2010 lake of the ozarks amb - 1994 or so MEMSA about 5 times but since my parents own a lake home at the ozarks, I was able to stay at their house and then drive to the conference, it was only a 35-40 minute drive from their lake house to Tan Tar A or I would just take their boat and park in a boat slip. so much fun, I so miss it a lot, but I'm mostly retired from EMS now. do you guys use Cerner or some other application for the EMR?

    How funny ruff - perhaps we have crossed paths before and didn’t know it. I was a medic at St. John’s (now called Mercy). I worked on the ground and flew for Life Line. I am back there now and yeah both Mercy and Cox are Level 1....and they are only about 1 mile from one another. Both places are still ridiculously busy. Go figure- build it and they will come. We do get a lot of area referrals though. Bob Page, the 12 lead master - you know i still read 12 leads as a physician the same way he taught me as a medic....it works. And my god the good ol lake of the ozarks. LOL that place is wild. My fiancé is from there. I remember back in the day when MEMSA would hold the combined clinical conference there at tan tar a. What a party. LOL. Crap I think I posted in the wrong thread....oh well. Freaking mobile phones.

    I have the feeling that this place will never be like it was 2 years ago. We're lucky if we get 3 new posts a week and most people posting post on previous threads. Facebook has really hit this place hard.

    Thanks for the effort. I was hoping it would come together. I'm not sure it's realistic for me to make plans that far out, but I was optimistic that once y'all had it worked out I could find a way to go. I miss this place. I wish it was like it used to be. I learned SO much here.

    Ok, two weeks into this, NO interest. Someone else will have to spearhead this. Closing out the offer.

    Richard, my prayers to your family, You are one of those who I always think about when things on my end get tough. I mean I don't say in my head "what would Richard do" but I think, at times, that you've been through some tough times, I can get through mine. That sounds cheesy but it's true. My obesity, I've got a Fire Captain recliner chair gut, has really hit my lower back hard. Plus all those years with the Ferno cot without the battery lift assist. Plus all those lifting those patients out of bathtubs, car wrecks, tight spaces and every where else we lifted them out of, has taken it's toll. No offense to any fire captain ok. Take care my friend, good tidings and merry christmas.

    Unfortunately, in the 6 months she was not in the house and home she's lived in from when she was 16, the Alzheimer's she was starting to suffer from, prior to Superstorm Sandy, kicked in heavily. She is now almost without speech, and wheelchair bound. Me? Right knee arthritis, aggravated by my obesity.

    I tried to get into my account to set it back up and it appears that I have been deactivated. I have an email to support to see if they can set us back up again.

    Looks like all of us old timers are showing back up.

    way back when you were a new provider, it's been a long time. Richard, how have you been? If I remember right, the last time you really posted, your mom was affected quite a bit by the east coast hurricane or something along that course of problems. Hoping you have been well.

    They had to try 3 times to remember you as well, who is this guy that calls himself Brentoli?

    I would post more. I use Tapatalk daily. I had to try my password 3 timers to be able to reply to this post.
  20. EMT City 2nd sort of annual reunion

    This post is 4 days old and not a single response. I think the interest in a reunion might be zero.
  21. Tapatalk?

    Not me, I consider myself one of the most active users if not the most active user on this site at this particular time period and I don't have any more time to devote to posting or using this site. If I start seeing more people on this site, I mean more new people then maybe I'd start using it but for now, I think we need more traffic. but on the flip side, maybe if you did set it up we would see more people using this site.
  22. Tapatalk?

    We used to have Tapatalk set up here allowing you to access the site through their app. Does anyone have interest in me setting that back up?
  23. EMT City 2nd sort of annual reunion

    One thing, if only 5 or so people agree to a reunion it's going to have to be Kansas city or it won't be worth the effort honestly. not trying to be a debbie downer but the effort to put something like this on is tremendous and takes a masters degree in event planning.
  24. EMT City 2nd sort of annual reunion

    Ok, so the title is a misnomer, it's more of a 2nd bi-decade EMT City reunion. I'm going to be putting out a couple of suggested locations, only one of the locations I'm able to coordinate and also a couple of months for the reunion. I can pick the places we meet depending on the months we decide to meet and the food but of course only if this is in Kansas City. Nashville and or Colorado springs or elsewhere needs to be coordinated by someone else. This is simply the beginning of a discussion and there is no guarantee this will get off the ground, we already tried this one time 5 or so years ago and it flopped. So Respond back with three answers here see the end of the post for the questions: Locations(locations not all the way to the coast and one smack in the middle of the country) 1. Kansas City MO (this is the location I can coordinate) 2. Nashville, TN 3. Colorado Springs, CO Dates: (I'm out for June too much crap for work) February 2018 April 2018 July 2018 Questions to answer 1. Could you make it to a reunion and are you interested in something like this? 2. Which of the three cities is more preferable to you. 3. Which month is more palatable? Answer these three questions - I will keep this post open for a month or so to gauge interest. And then if enough interest is there then we can move on to step 2 - which is pick the city and the date and begin determining the cost. Private questions can be sent to ruffems@gmail.com
  25. Old folks Still here?

    I have so much stuff going on with work that someone else would really have to do the arrangements. I'm willing to travel somewhere for this. But I'm also willing to set up partially the reunion but someone else needs to help with arrangements and deposits for venues and places and food. It can be done but I just cannot do it all.
  26. Old folks Still here?

    Well, spread the news and lets see if we can get a few people together. MO is a long way from me, but then, so is almost everywhere! I could probably swing it if we found enough interest
  27. Old folks Still here?

    I'm interested but it would have to be within driving distance of the metro area of KC MO. I'm getting pretty poor in my old age and I'm just not able to afford any long trips anymore. A 1 day drive one way, then a day for the reunion, then an overnight and then drive back would be about the extent of what I could afford. My days of having crap loads of frequent flyer miles are over, it's back to poor civilian life for me.
  28. Old folks Still here?

    Haha, you poor old fart.... the ancient and debilitating Half Century! I wish I could go back to that and realize how great an age it was! , incidentally, would be very interested in Reunion 2.0 if there are enough of us old farts left still above ground. Any takers?
