  1. Great topic I always enjoy seeing what's on the other side of the fence, or ocean, whichever the case may be... Here is a recent remount, we moved from Ford 450 Super duty type 1 to Check 4500 type 3s - a marvelous change. We doubled fuel economy and got rid of those blasted air-ride systems. We also dropped our maintenance budget and out of service times dramatically. And finally, my ride (2011 Chevy 2500HD 4x4): Please, everyone, keep posting your pictures! Thanks, MMan Sent from my thing... Just to note, we are in North Florida. The coastal County just south of Ta

  3. After my 10th year in ems (I'm currently on #24) I dropped down to an ambu bag and a pair of gloves. Otherwise the ems unit can carry it... I don't mean this to be an offensive point, you will see in time what is important for you to carry off-duty. Sent from my thing...

  5. "NEVER give someone on chronic opiates 2mg of IV narcan, NEVER." GREAT ADVICE! In my 24 years as a Paramedic, I've made a few mistakes ... This is one of the errors that I share most frequently with my new medics in training. I once ran a Pt with cancer, he was on a boat load of opiates, for obvious reasons. We were called to a Pt not breathing, and as a brand new medic I was there to save the day - uh, I mean Pt. The Pt actually was breathing, just not very often. So I loaded up my 2mg of narcan and pushed away. Not only did he start breathing at a normal rate, but I listened to hi
  6. That's funny, my friends and even the cashiers at the convenience store near our station know not to utter the "Q" word around me... Sent from me, using my thumbs

  8. Sounds like you've handled it perfectly... Great work. I'm sure she is better because of your help. Sincerely, Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T using Tapatalk 2
  9. Sounds like you did great Arctickat, especially in passing on the EMS tradition - or more accurately developing an ems tradition. Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T using Tapatalk 2

  14. I first got my associates of science in EMS, this helped with promotions over the years. As a departure, I finished a bachelor's in business. My logic was that if ems ever left my system, I could always manage a McDonald's for about the same wage. After 22 years, I'm still not managing a McDonald's...

  15. It's the 648.2(a) "... If possible" that is the sticker. When it goes bad, then it obviously wasn't possible... Be careful with this one. Just my $. 02 Sent from my ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T using Tapatalk 2
