    Yes im excited. I was two points away from honor grad. Extremely ready to get on a truck. What I did in a classroom isn't anything like real life. I just hope what I learned in clinicals sticks with me. Yes im excited. I was two points away from honor grad. Extremely ready to get on a truck.

    wish me luck, my A&P test is Tuesday. I bet I have re-copied my notes 10 times. And my bone test is Thursday. Really stoked about this. EMS is one of the best fields ever. It has completely changed how sympathetic and empathetic I feel for others. And I want to thank everyone who has helped me with advice,tips,tricks, and etc. This forum and everyone a part of it has been a huge help. Clinicals start in about a week as well,so I will definitely be posting for more of the helpful and detailed advice the men and women on here have to offer

    Volunteer Services on East Coast

    I don't personally my scope of practice is BLS. I'm just an EMR as of right now...some of our guys have a higher scope of practice and are able to do more on our calls.
  18. So I found myself in a predicament....as an EMR its highly likely that we will by ourselves for x amount of time on certain calls. For ex. A multiple car collision...eta for ambulance is 20 minutes where I live, there are more than one casualties....and I'm the only one on scene....when a collision were taught to expect trauma...now if there are two of us then one holds cspine and the other palpates and assess now were taught not to release c spine until the pt is packaged how do I deal with this if I'm alone

    If you're by yourself?

    Thank you all once again for your great words....I know the question was pretty much common sense....but I guess I needed a little push in the right direction....I've only been with the city for a little bit, but i've already learned a lot from things y'all have posted on my topics and others as well. Looking forward to more to come.

    Sorry artic lol. Law enforcement around here don't just treat first redponders like dirt, they treat our emts and medics the same...they think just because they wear a badge they're better than us....when we have a multiple car collision they are more worried about prosecuting for DUI than helping us And thanks for your words of wisdom...I'm new to ems and haven't had been on many calls...matter of fact never been by myself for more than 5 minutes....but I know soon 4 out of our 6 respomders are going on vacation and I just wanted to prepare myself

    If you're by yourself?

    thanks for tips....now if I.can just get law enforcement to help it'll be great. They look at us like trash

    What about if I have multiples? I'm a volunteer first responder for my local fd....I don't get paid so its not work. Lol

    If you're by yourself?

    Thanks tom...the medics around here expect us to pretty much have a report ready for them....they want vitals, the pt assessed, and what we've already done.
