  1. Old folks Still here?

    Due to a bad knee, unfortunately, would not be able to travel too well, even if the event were to be held within NYC, which is my home town, or even within Queens County, one of the 5 counties comprising "The Greater City of New York ".
  2. Tapatalk?

    Unfortunately, in the 6 months she was not in the house and home she's lived in from when she was 16, the Alzheimer's she was starting to suffer from, prior to Superstorm Sandy, kicked in heavily. She is now almost without speech, and wheelchair bound. Me? Right knee arthritis, aggravated by my obesity.
  3. Tapatalk?

    I don't recall tapatalk. When was this in service?
  4. Funniest EMS stories

    I'm sure I'm not the only EMT-Dispatcher who had this situation... Caller says, "I'm at (Location). Me: "What is going on that you need an ambulance?" Caller: "I was shot!" I enter the high priority call into the Computer Assisted Dispatch system, then ask: "Where were you shot?" Caller: "Outside DaNang, 1969".

    Generally speaking, any EMT, Paramedic, Law Enforcement Officer, or Firefighter who has a year's worth of experience could write a first person report, and would be dismissed by the general public, under the impression that it was all made up. By the way, I have at least 80 pages onto the memory stick, for 42 years worth of experiences. You have competition, as do I, for these type books, but I wish all of us trying, "Good Luck".
  6. EMT Student looking for help with an assingment

    Just noted the typo, should read as "I don't know".
  7. EMT Student looking for help with an assingment

    I'll try as best I can. Question away, as the worst I can give ya is "I don't".
  8. Last posting here in August? Where is everybody? Hiding out on Facebook _Dinosaurs of EMS? I admit I'm guilty of that. Let's see what number of postings this makes for me overall on THIS site? 6994, my response to myself makes 6995!
  9. TV show "TRAUMA" still out there!

    I'm a subscriber to Amazon Firestick. I just discovered they carry the show so many members of EMT City disliked so intensely, "TRAUMA". No, I am NOT going to spend my money to relive that series, or if available, "Rescue 77", "Trauma Center", or, no matter how I like Mark Harmon, "240 Robert"!
  10. Old folks Still here?

    As for the national election, I'm now running for president. Before I do, however, I'm changing my name to "None of the Above"!

    Beware THIS dog, if provoked, he DOES bite! Welcome aboard.
  12. Hello My pretties

    I'm in a geographic bind for Hockey. Stuck between the Rangers and Islanders.
  13. Hello My pretties

    As for me, I like the New York Mets, as they're my hometown team (Queens, NY). I also like the New York Yankees (sometimes called the "Bronx Bombers") as I like Tradition. My third "like" is ANY team beating the Dodgers, because my parents came from BROOKLYN!!!

    The baseball team?
  15. New Here...Hello!

    Welcome aboard, little Grasshopper! Let the EMT City teams help get you established as an EMT first, with a bit of experience before going tactical. Having said that, I was an EMT, EMT-D(efibrillator), and EMT-B(asic) for 41 years, now retired for 5 with my NY State EMT "certs" expired from last summer. I never was asked to go tactical, although I did think of going for USAR Team NYC 1, before medical issues made me reconsider. We may be gruff, easy, and hard on you, all at the same time, Tactical EMT, but we all mean well, even when we seem to be attacking you, politely, of course. Let us help you get your act together, before you do any "oopsies".
