  1. I had to pick my self up off the floor I was laughing so hard at this.
  2. I don't remember being taught those core values all though this rookie did take his class a whole 5 years ago now. Yes we are supposed to have all of those however that is with respect to our PATIENTS and each other but I guarantee you out in the field if you do something to endager the life of someone or you make a wrong statement your partner is going to blast you all the way to hell and back again. The compassion part only goes so far when you make an error of judgement like the OP has done. You may not agree that it was an error in judgement but it was in the opinion of those who h
  3. Note to self: Don't post replies at 000 or later your spelling grammar sucks.

      Spelling Grammar? or Spelling and Grammar? (jk)

  4. It's funny to see this Ruff. My cousin failled the Registry twice as well granted she did not fail all categories, when she did she came to me and said what should I do? I said first of all you should consider retaking the class. It is no shame on you it just means you need to have the knowledge reinforced. The second thing I did for her was...and I know this is going to sound strange coming from me to those of you who know me....I recommended that she join the city. It is one of the best websites out here to tap the knowledge of many skilled providers. You sometimes have to wade through the j
  5. Quote of the day right there...I have tried to stay out of this thread after being called a rookie and told that I was bullying but I have to agree with most of what Lone and others have said on this thread EMS is not known for being warm and fuzzy. If you think were being mean well then let me say this....If ya can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen. In know way shape or form have I seen anyone say that working at the local burger shack or sack n suds...(you do know what those are?) was a "bad job" they have all said it just was not a job that lead to very many places...Do you think that
  6. I was to young to be involved in EMS at the time. With that being said I will never forget that day, I was in the eighth grade and had to get up along about 0500 to get ready for school. My dad had just come in from running and woke me up. He went on to take his shower and get ready for work, and as I did every morning (and still do) I would turn on the tv's to the news channel. I remember turning on CNN and seeing smoke billowing out of the first tower. I thought oh it must be an accident. I went on and took my shower and came out to see the second tower getting hit. I thought it was a replay
  7. Bring a book, a snack, and maybe even a lunch. However if you are like most thirds on a rig your crew will have rideritis and not get a damn thing all day so bring a good book.
  8. I said to myself that after being called a rookie (no it was not direct however the inent was there) I would no longer post to this thread. However, I have two more things to say about it and then I agree with Richard I hope this thread is locked. First, I am going to make an assumption and it might come back to haunt me but eh, nothing ventured nothing gained. I would like to take a moment to thank you for not only being someone who set back EMS, but I suspect you set my generation back as a whole. I say MY generation because I don't want to include you as part of it. Some of us especiall
  9. Thats great ugly but that is the State one. The one that the OP is looking for is a DOT permit Specific to LA City not the State. OP While LA County doesn't have a DOT Requirment. LA City does. That card is so that you can pick up patients in the City of Los Angeles and that is all it is for basically it is a way for the city to make a few more bucks but if you don't have that card you could have a hefty fine on your hands if you are ever pulled over in the city of LA. Also if you work for one of the mom and pop IFT companies then you need to make sure that all of the rigs have the LA City Per
  10. A hunter and his friend were sitting in a tall tower stand near Highway 7 early one cold December morning. Suddenly, a huge buck walked out over the corn they had spread in the low shrubs. The buck was magnificent, a once in a lifetime animal. His rack was huge. The hunter's hand shook as his mind was already counting the Boone and Crockett points. Moving quickly, the hunter carefully aimed the Leopold scope on his .300 Win Mag at the unsuspecting buck. As he was about to squeeze the trigger on this deer of a lifetime, his friend alerted him to a funeral procession passing slowly down
  11. Welcome to the insane asylum known as EMS. First of all may you have many great years of this profession. Second know that you will laugh you will cry, you will have great triumphs and great lows on a personal level, this job can drive a person insane don't be ashamed to vent here. Third and most important in my opinion HAVE FUN.
  12. There is not a whole lot I can say except that not only do I hope you prove us wrong in our assumptions due to your username choice but if you are anywhere with in my age range 18-25 I hope you prove us wrong for that as well. I am from the wonderful land of Jello (ask LoneStar) and people in this age range are looked down upon as immature snobbish rude etc. I have had to work hard to overcome that stereotype personally and professionally due to "jokes" and "humor" such as yours. For all of our sakes once again I hope you prove all of us wrong in our first impression.
  13. I really hope someone can help me get warm fast I couldn't feel my hands when I washed them with HOT water a few mins ago.

  14. +1 for admitting that it might have been a mistake on your part. Now that you have the knowledge hope to see ya on the streets some time.
  15. I have to say that there is alot of military history in my family and while I have had no desire to serve, I have a huge respect for those who have and those who do. I feel and I maybe a bit off course in this but I feel that I am in the minority with my respect for the military in my generation. I hope and wish that I was wrong however at least in my neck of the woods there is almost the same attitude about this current war as there was Vietnam. Now granted I do live in CA where people are a little off their rockers anyway. Anyrate, Thank you LS AK and any others who I do not know about for
