    Old folks Still here?

    Well, at least some of you are still alive. I had to BUY a domain name, to get into an email, to use software.. and all of a sudden it starts populating with old email. And then I seen this place... and I was like, how the hell am I supposed to remember the password for that? Anyhoo.. Still have a pulse. Actually, every single time someone asks me how I am, I check my pulse and just stare at them.

    Passing of Island EMT - Member

    My most sincere condolences on "Island's" passing, I enjoyed his contributions and sense of humor very much!

    Narcan at the EMT level.

    We're allowed to carry it, we don't. The state recommended auto injectors. These things cost about $860. Not happening. State Police have it, issued, for free. They won't use it. Control the airway. I can buy a hell of a lot of BVM's for $860. That's exactly what I said during the EMS Advisory Committee meeting. Keep them breathing; and let the medics give them just enough to sustain life.. Our biggest problem has been people using K2, Spice, etc. There is a known heroin ring, and problem, but we have yet to see any OD's. - Now south of us, you'll hear three or four OD-Arrests in a clip.

    After my tax refund and retirement check, I could have easily taken the next fifteen years off. ha ha.. But, the company I worked for lost it's contract and folded, virtually overnight. I got out just in time. Got bored doing nothing. Lasted about two months, work EMS again.

    No, you can just call me Chief.
  8. I'm still alive. Woo Hoo. I started page 222 I feel speshl.
  9. Our uniforms are like... A polo and BDU's. No place for a badge. Even if wearing a typical "uniform" type shirt, no badge. My thought on wearing a badge are this: Dude A: Has a gun, wants to kill himself, someone else, is drunk, high, et al. Dude B: Is wearing a badge (and has a gun to defend himself) Dude C: Came to take the loser of the battle to the ER. If Dude A recognizes Dude B as a cop, b/c he has a uniform with a badge. He may also recognize Dude C as a cop, b/c he has a uniform with a badge. I like to separate US from Police. People tend to be more open if we're not PD, and may possibly be less likely to kill us, if they recognize us as "Not the cops". Then again, they may just want to kill us, too. I don't know if that makes sense, I've been drinking.

    Are These EMS Type Of Websites Dying ?

    Can't afford to chat on a forum, you gotta work near 24/7 just to pay the bills. I think EMS is dying.

    Oxygen causing harm?

    Some study must have popped up. B/c something has changed. I used to buy NRB's by the case, now I buy like six..at a time. Six masks.. A cylinder lasts three months, vs a few weeks. Keep changing stuff, so it's cheaper to run a service. We could save loads if they did away with board and collars.

    Vintage A&J Resuscitator 1940's very very rare!

    I believe that is an E&J. We had one that came off of a retired apparatus. The interior device was trash, but the case looked new after some elbow grease with a "Magic Eraser". One of the members removed everything except the curved tank holders from the plate inside and uses it to carry his portable oxygen, etc., in. I believe the "Lytport" meant Lite and Portable. It may have been portable, but there was nothing lite about it. There's another one by the same company in the basement. It looks like a steamer trunk. Sell it on eBay, they go for a pretty penny on there, too.
  13. I just got a kitten. I should get another, and name them slow and quiet. I think Karma is broken, b/c nothing happened on this end. I could go for some trauma, and not the scratch my hand from "cat's" claws. I call him cat. I should probably get some bandaids and iodine.

    Still Burning

    I'm taking a few or ten months to myself. To explore. I dunno what I'll do afterward. Go back to school? Always wanted to be a nurse. I'd prolly enjoy that. I will never work in the Natural Gas/Oil industry again. I'm a people person, or I was. Now I'm a dick. My job was to find what people were doing that wasn't safe, and they were fired for it. No warnings, no second chances. I was good at getting people fired. But I did a lot of things they didn't like. My office was like a massive first aid kit, I knew the Cintas guy more than anyone else - ha ha. I was expected to be stern and harsh, but if someone was hurt or sick - even if they'd get fired (not for being sick) - I was still compassionate. I enjoyed that, but lack of sleep was what ended it, I had my little melt down, had to pay for their phone. I can't sleep all the time, so I got something different today. Makes me a little dizzy, but I haven't bled from anywhere, so I guess I'm on the good end of the side effects. ha ha ha...anyhoo.. I think I'll ease back into normalcy. .and I won't buy any firearms.
