  1. I'm not sure what the old design looked like, but I like this one.
  2. Oh lordy. All you emtcity veterans please don't kill me for reviving a long dead post, just trying to liven things up a bit... I guess? I have two "kits" if you will. Kit 1 - a ziplock bag with some gloves in it. Sits in my door in the bottom. With that there's a small first aid kit with some general trauma stuff (an abd pad or two, some gauze, I think some scissors, and that's about all.) Most important thing I carry is my cell phone. First thing I do is call 9-11, whether I stop or not. Kit 2 - a more fully stocked kit with some IV supplies, epi, and benadryl. I ONLY take this
  3. I know this is old, but what's wrong with this one?
  4. I've been using my 5.11 Atac L2 for 4 years now. Although they've discontinued the L2 there are plenty of other Atac's out there. For around $100 you can get yourself a really good flashlight. It's got 3 modes, high (222 lm), low (10 lm) and strobe (222 lm). Takes 2x CR123 batteries, which are expensive but each set have lasted well over a year.

  5. Long story short, to help people. Was always something that I was interested in, even from a very young age. From an educational stand point? Yeah, I had to pause my EMT course (about 2.5 months in) due to student loan issues and then restart from scratch when the next EMT course opened up. If I would have done my homework I could have avoided all of that and just done it in one go. Besides that, no. Went to a great school and got a great education. A lot. Do a quick google search and you'll find many routes you can take as a paramedic. CBRNE, Tactical medic, community paramedicine
  6. Looks like I have something to do on my days off now, thanks!
  7. Congratulations to you both! Now that the easy part has passed, the real learning and fun begins!
  8. I can't stand facebook... But unfortunately it's a great way to stay in touch with family and friends in other provinces. There's also some decent groups on there (EMS, self defence, shooting, etc). Maybe one day I'll take the jump and close my facebook account... but probably not.
  9. Edmonton, Alberta just got Canada's first stroke ambulance. Kind of excited to see how much of a difference it makes, if any. http://www.edmontonjournal.com/Edmonton+Canada+first+stroke+ambulance/11197681/story.html
  10. Definitely planning on it! Just got home from a loooooong shift, so let's see what we got here!
  11. Hey! I used to post here too. Recently found out dust passed away and was quite sad to hear so. Let's see if we can liven this place up some!
