  1. Wow...it's been a while since I was around these parts other than a quick lurk at a post that floated across facebook. I am not even sure how many of the folks around here now will even remember me other than Admin, if he is even still around. I truly miss this place and will try to make a more concerted effort to come around more often and see you guys. Now a little update, I am working a wonderful large non profit that many are familiar with after I left medic school I went back to College and completed an AA in Technical theatre as well as working on all of the prerequisite classes that the late Dustdevil and the great AKFlightmedic ordered me to take and yes I am still a EMT B although I am toying with the idea of going for my medic even though I am currently working on a degree in Emergency Management focusing on Disaster Relief. I moonlight from time to time around the great state of CA and look forward to reconnecting with old friend (if any are left) and meeting new ones.
  2. A moment when your phone goes off you jump in excitement only to find its not a message from the one you were hoping for just another tweet

  3. You wait for a chance to talk to someone important just to find out that person had to go to bed before you got off work...damn time zones.

  6. So a very good friend of mine named Stewart Caswell is wanting to become a travel writer, specializing in writing guides for people with disabilities (see below) if you any of you have knowledge that can help him out pass it to me and I will see that he gets it. Thanks. Hey, guys! I’m in the beginning stages of working on getting things in order to be able to combine two things I love, which is writing and traveling, and my goal is to be able to travel and then write about it, along t...

  9. With all of the things going on in the last 48 hours I can't help but remember a line from a show that takes on a whole new meaning every time I am involved with it. It has always meant a lot to me but today is a whole new meaning. Actually I am going to share two lines. "Measure your life in Love" and "No Day but Today"

  18. To those friends who love the theatre - whether it be at the professional, educational, or even community level - thank you for doing your part to save the world every single day. Theatre brings people together, uniting in a venture which is wholly constructive and creative. In a world that feels so often divisive and exclusionary the Theatre DEMANDS collaboration... from the actors, directors, designers, and technicians all the way through to the shared experience in front of a living, breat...

  19. Well didn't make it into Medic School this time around guess I have to try again...from what I was told I was a couple of questions off...to quote one of my favorite shows "It's time to close my eyes and leap. It's time to try defying gravity" I guess I will see where this takes me next.

      Sorry Brother, I know that has got to suck..

  20. I think it is time for Facebook and I to have a parting of the ways...at least for a while I am tired of the politics and the people crying about this that and the other thing so...I guess until we meet again see ya if you want to talk to me there are other ways listed on my profile.

  21. You know when I first tsarted this post I had a whole bunch of stuff quoted but to be honest thtat just cluttered up my post. You stated that you were 18 and not yet an EMT, I am 22 it was not that long ago that I was in your shoes as a matter of fact I skipped my high school graduation so that I could go take my National Registry practicals. With that being said don't you DARE start telling people that have more years in this field than you do alive to get there panties out of a wad or that you helped them stroke their egos. Seeing as I am not much older than you I can say some things and not come off as some elder that is just spouting stuff. You are arrogant if you think that just because you bought a book and read it you are as qualified as I am, I will get to my lack of qualifications here in a second. Your first mistake was responding apparently outside of the agency response matrix if you even belong to said agency. Second you gave the patient Nitro, RuffEMS (or maybe Eyedawn) asked you some questions about Nitro that I can't answer YET. Second of all if I ever had you come across as my student and I knew that you were the guy who posted this on this thread you would do NOTHING BUT CARRY GEAR and this has nothing to do with the fact that you are a student but that you can't keep your stories straight. Anyway I will get off that soapbox and move on to the education soap box I am an EMT, As an EMT you know enough to kill your patient, with that being said if I know enough to kill my patient than what do you know...exactly nothing. Did you take the BP by auscultation or by palpation. Do you even know what these words mean? You stated in one of your myriad of sad posts that c-spine wasn't rocket science and that since you read how to do it in the book you know how to do it. Have you ever practiced and been guided through how to do it by an experienced preceptor? Can you tell me at what vertebrae does lower extremity paralysis set in, what about upper body paralysis? Also tell me just how did you maintain proper c-spine while applying the collar? Last time I checked it took two hands to hold the head and two to apply the collar? With that being said I attempted paramedic school once I failed out but you know what I am on my way to being a better provider because of that. When you want to start working on EMS as a profession not just some hobby that you do when you need some adrenaline high come talk to me or a number of other professionals on this website and we will set out a curriculum for you that is tough and progressive enough to educate you not just in how to do something but why you do it. I could have been a paramedic out on the streets in 14 months instead I took the long road as our generation of providers needs to do and am getting a degree in the field that I enjoy. Now on a more human nature your 18, you think your big bad and Gods gift to man kind, well guess what you ain't your the kind of person that give our generation a bad name, I have had to work hard in my career to overcome the stereotypes that people like you have put onto my generation. You ask what you did wrong we tell you and you tell us that we are stroking our egos. You ask what you did wrong we tell you and you say what none of us do is rocket science well let me tell you something kid I would take just about any of these professionals on this site and I would put my life and the lives of my family in the hands of these "arrogant folks". Now grow up put your boots on and come get some education not just from us on this website but from many other experienced professionals that probably are in the community with which you live. Oh and I am sorry but you have not EARNED the right to use that avatar IMHO there are only three people that are anywhere near close enough on this site to being able to use that avatar and seeing as your name isn't Dwayne AKFlightmedic or ERDoc please show us a little compassion and change it.
  22. Some of you may have an idea what the badge is for some of you may not, but I just found out today that one of my greatest mentors on my quest to become a paramedic passed away last night after one horrendous battle with Lou Gehrig's disease. Rob Davis you will forever be in my heart and will always be on my mind with each patient that I treat from now until I can no longer put the gloves on. I am sorry I never got to buy ya that beer man. While that badge is not a picture of my own badge, if...

  23. I can honestly say that if it weren't for Rob (Dustdevil) I would not be an EMT anymore, nore would I be a medic student hopeful who even though I will not walk out with a degree in EMS I will walk out with knowledge that will make me more than just a patch mill medic. I tried medic school once before and Dust (and a few others) told me you really don't want to go that route and me being the punk kid I was thought I knew better so I did it anyway and guess what I failed out. But that was a good thing for me because I walked out with my head held high and I drove straight from that little patch mill to the local college and I enrolled in A and P classes as well as every other class that both he and AK have always been so vocal about and now two years later I am applying for Paramedic school once again, with the knowledge to be the kind of provider that would make him proud. Dust you inspired me and I will get through medic this time around come hell or high water and I will do it in memory of you man. See ya in that dispatch center in the sky.
