  2. Hello from Michigan USA. I worked with German Medics and Doctors from Germany during thr Red Bull Air Races on the Detroit River. Very Smart and Had their stuff together. Very good airshow not a boring place. sat with the Doctor and Emergency Divers. Luck was on our side no problems. Cheers.

  4. I spent 11 years on Active Service-as a Hospital Corpsman I had extensive training with Doctors, Nurses, Ect, Ect, Ect.

  6. Hello, need some input, a friend of mine wants to go to emt school then Medic after a year or two- problem is he has 2 misdemenors on his record. Tresspassing and Public intoxication.

  9. This goes back to the topic,,WHEN IN DOUBT-DO NO HARM. i BECAME A PARAMEDIC TO HELP PEOPLE. The Police are ussually first on scene. You want to shoot people, be a cop. end of story. Cheers. very blunt, but the truth.
  10. I,m 52- hang in there. I just saw a Fireman get hired at 50 years old, he was in better shape then alot of younger folks. I just recovered from a long illness- 5 bites from a brown Recluse spider. Still here, able to do my work. God has a sence of humor, trust me on that. Cheers
