  5. FDNY PARAMEDICS 2; FDNY FIREFIGHTERS 341; PRIVATE EMS 8; NYPD 23; PAPD 37; MEMBERS OF THE ARMED SERVICES 55; EVERYDAY AMERICANS 2511. NEVER FORGET 2977! God bless our country and the Services both Emergency and Armed who stepped up to the challenge that horrible day!

  6. Wow..I must have made a wrong turn.....lol

  7. I agree, my old company was not innocent....
  8. Mike, I have to touch bases with you...its been a while......
  9. My past EMS employer threatened to fire and sue me for posts about work and pictures of the trucks I posted. I did remove the pics but did not censor what I said, there was about 6 more employees that had pics posted and not 1 word said to them, so I told them Ill be waiting for there lawyer to call me.......that was a year and a half ago...my phone hasn't rang yet....
  10. Medicare is a joke, Ive had patients near death and they wanted a CMN (Certificate of medical necessity)..... You would think respiratory failure is a good enough reason....
  11. I worked for a service in Pittsburgh for 9 years that did 70% transports. We also did 911 calls for a town of 10,000 and about 6 nursing homes in PGH. Yes it gets old taking grandma back and forth, but good way to stay in practice with vitals and your "people" skills, and face it, that's the money maker for EMS.
  12. Im from central Illinois.....about 10 mins east of Peoria
  13. I always wore a name tag. Want to know my name ask or read the tag.. I have nothing to hide. I told a RN once to be sure to spell my name correctly as I pointed to it on my name tag.....
  14. HICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Franklin,Pa has a Pone Lane........always made me laugh, don't know why Elizabeth Twp,Pa has a memory lane........ Pittsburgh Pa has a Gettysburg street, now it might not be funny, but, everytime there is a call there a few medics will ask the dispatcher "repeat the Gettysburg address" None of them ever catch on.... And there is a town and road here called Kickapoo......
  16. Volunteering is okay...but then they take advantage of you...
  17. Dust, Sorry to hear about your luck. Keep your chin up....
  18. Been enjoying some "time off" from EMS, havent seen a patient since september, my back is thanking me....
