  1. Damn that sucks. Fly high old friend.
  2. Hey we got Tapatalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just like 90s cartoons, our memories are better than the real thing. At least incoig a pig a couple of new Facebook friends from it!
  4. Honestly, it just comes down to money. If I could go through two years of school, and not have to worry about finances I would do it in a heartbeat.
  5. I would hope we have all had situations we have handled similarly. Maybe not cooking a full meal for them, but going above and beyond the call. Thats why we signed up for this gig, wasn't it?
  6. It's going alright so far. I love how much more critical I am considering everything. Things I have never thought about before.
  7. Well, they COULD be the MD. But..... are they qualified for the role? I know a couple of services around here have a family doctor that is their MD. I do not know anything regarding those doctor's history and background though.
  8. I just started an Advanced EMT course. May God rest my soul. I don't know what I was thinking.
  9. Yeah, it took me a bit to figure mine out. I thought I would log in after I saw Ruff post the news about Jess on FB.
  10. Possibly. I'll be interviewing in a couple of weeks. Passed a written and practical test already.
  11. Maybe. More to be decided in the next couple weeks. Possible changes ahead for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk - now Free
  12. You can never go wrong with documentation. There's ways to not make it so dry and boring also. Do you do in house or contracted billing? If you use an ems billing company they may be willing to help you out on documentation classes. Sent from my Galaxy S III on Tapatalk!

  14. This times 100. If you lose the audience you might as well pass out the power point and go home. Often the books will have online resources to use as well, ranging from power points, to lesson plans and videos. I recommend against using them verbatim, but they can give you great ideas of ways to go you haven't thought of. You don't want to spend too long on any one media, especially in a fire school setting. If I remember right, the major publishers design ems materials to the tenth grade level. Keep that in mind as well. Switch up media from videos to slides to hands on. Even if you don't want to teach full time, I'd highly recommend taking some courses in adult education. With the right instructor you can learn lots about communication and theory Sent from my Galaxy S III on Tapatalk!
  15. Somehow I always seem to log on to the site for the first time in ages, during cap lab. Interesting how that works. Sent from my Galaxy S III on Tapatalk!
  16. Sounds like a run to my county. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD She took one of his really nice "rims" and sold it to a Mexican for $150. Whoops. Her brother didn't like me anyway. Or her dad. Or most of her friends. Guess it wasn't a huge loss. Although she's the reason I dropped/failed out of college. I don't see that as. Gigantic loss though, considering the opportunities I've had, and I'm back in school now. Alls well that ends well. The way I see it, it's the most eff'ed up times in life that shape us, nd those times we feel glples, we actually have the most control of our destiny. That will be 1 billable hour at $125 please.

  17. I wish! I only allow myself 2-3 days of beer drinking a year. My liver is in bad enough shape as it is. You know I just had my gallbladder out, they surgeon had to punch another hole, because my fatty liver was wrapping around my gall bladder. He had to fight it off.
  18. In the interest of full disclosure. I feel like I should share, I am a state certified EMT through 3/31/14 but currently I am no longer working as an EMT on an ambulance. Only as a FD first responder. Also I never finished my PI class. I was fired from a job once, but it wasn't medically related. I also took $100 from an ex girlfriend after we broke up. She blamed it on her brother and stole something of his. I'd hate to see what that ballooned into.i never fessed up, and I wouldn't even know how to get ahold of her today, almost 9 years later. /closet Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD
  19. I still remember my jaw dropping, when I logged into Radio Reference and had a PM from no one other than.... Rob. I had no idea the man was a closet whacker.
