  1. I wonder if it's some contract contingency kind of thing. I've run into a few of those. They don't actually *have* the contract yet but want to make sure they have a crew so they can hit the ground running if they are awarded it.
  2. I'm another one that has been inactive but still checks things out. And every time I'd come back and visit, DD was in the thread with a very "Ok, here's how it is..." approach. Sometimes I disagreed, but I did always respect the straightforward way he laid things out. RIP, brother. Thanks for everything.
  3. Yup. In our county, EMTs/BLS rigs are not allowed to contact medical control.
  4. Well, it might not be totally my choice. My other half works in clinical research and there are more jobs in the field up in Grand Forks. ;-) But then again we might end up in Rochester, MN with the Mayo Clinic.. so who knows. I love both areas though. Minnesota & North Dakota are some of my favorite places on Earth.
  5. Then click the "Register Now" button. It's free. :-P
  6. No, they'd probably shoot you. Every time I play that song, someone throws something blunt at me. :-P It's called "We Like To Party! (The VengaBus)" by the Venga Boys. And yes, I have the mp3 here somewhere. It's a great way to get something blunt thrown your direction. ;-)
  7. The AAOS book says this: "6. Place the clamps about 2" to 4" apart, about four fingerwidths from the infant's body. Once they are firmly in place, cut between the clamps." AAOS "Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured" Eighth Edition, page 499. That's where I got my information from. I wasn't just making it up. :-)
  8. I dream about it sometimes. Sometimes I dream about trout fishing too. I don't even like fish. ;-)
  9. I think that the second one is better. If you don't have 10 inches of umbilical cord out, you're really screwed if you go by the Brady book! ;-) I learned it as "a little more than a hands width from the baby" and the second clamp goes "about 2 inches beyond that."
  10. If you're in the North Bay, have you considered Santa Rosa Junior College's Dept of Public Safety? http://www.sonic.net/srtc/
  11. Bayshore Ambulance here in the SF Bay Area has a similar looking unit, but it's made by Freightliner. A photo of one is here: And... I haven't seen the inside of one (Bayshore doesn't seem to get down this way that often) but from the outside, they look nice.
  12. http://www.filemaker.com - new version came out late last year. There are many books & resources available for it, too. I think that it's a lot easier (and more stable) than Microsoft Access, personally.
  13. Do you already have Microsoft Access? I could create something like this in FileMaker Pro in about 15 minutes. Much better way to go, actually. Especially for the web publishing engine.
  14. Yup. It's been there for many years. You might know it by the name "Six Flags Marine World." A badge might look ok... if you were in a nice uniform.. at a funeral... (d'oh. didn't realize how old this thread really was!)
  15. And I can chip in free web hosting (email as well) if you'd like. Nothing says "unprofessional" these days like using a hotmail, aol, or yahoo address for anything serious.
