  1. To all EMS colleagues, Need input from the ‪#‎firstresponder‬, ‪#‎fire‬ and ‪#‎EMS‬ communities for a school survey looking on how organizations may or may not use public relations. If you're interested in participating in this short, anonymous survey, please email me at richardmhuff@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send you the link. Thank you, Rich
  2. I formally introduce myself as Heather W. I have been a certified EMT-B since 2011. I do not have much out on the street experience alas I work in a local Trauma Center. The things I see rolling in on the carts are sometimes alarming but I can tell you seeing it pre hospital must be intriguing and in some ways rewarding or just heart wrenching. The Trauma Center I work for is a level 2. I hale from southern Indiana. I love my job and wouldn't have it any other way. I see sorrow, death, impending doom, intoxication, suicide. Amongst the many thing I do see on a daily basis I have to say is it i

    An apology.

    I’m sorry this has happened to you today. I am sorry you feel this way. I am sorry that you were born unlucky and suffer from this illness. I am sorry that they did this to you. I am sorry your bad day had become a turning point in my career. As the compassionate face expresses concern and empathy, the same person sweating over you will be receiving a high five in the ambulance bay. Sometimes your bad day will turn around the attitude for a burned out medic. It is what makes us good at our jobs and keeps our skills sharp and passion fresh. Our passion to help people. It’s the need to be want
  5. http://www.math.nus.edu.sg/~matlmc/Allegory_cave.pdf I have read this in past for my first degree in Literature (unemployment). As future leaders in emergency services, it makes me happy to see this added to the curriculum. In a constantly developing trade, it is important to practice critical thinking in an academic sense. Plato is using this metaphor to describe how people are educated. Everyone is taught to think in a special respect based on their upbringing. As described by the shadows on the wall being played by the marionettes or instructors, this is a metaphor on what people are taug
  6. I've been an NYC EMT a little over 3 years, a year and a half working transport @ Midwood Ambulance and a year and half working 911/Core @ NSLIJ. I did a small stint @ FDNY academy in between that time. I ended up resigning. I was just recently hired at Transcare's 911 division. my supervisor tried VAX'ing me but the FDNY denied me clearance to work for an unknown reason. Now I can't work 911 until the FDNY figures out why. It's been over 3 weeks. Has anyone been through this? And how much longer will it take for the FDNY to finally clear me? For what reasons would they deny someone clearance
  7. Please leave feedback on the EMS videos we've posted. Thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucaCzj-nQ0M
  8. Hi, My name is Patrick and I'm a 20 year old EMT-Intermediate student here in Germany. After finishing my German Baccalaeurate (High School Diploma) this spring I'd like to attend Med. School. Due to the high entrance criteria over here I'll need to wait a couple of years in order to get in. Now I'm thinking about starting Paramedic training in the US this fall/next spring. I'm thinking of a 2+2 program which would entitle myself to work as a Paramedic after the first 2 years... 2nd half could be pre-med school curriculum. Before Med School I'd love to gain some hands on patient expe
  9. Hello all, this is my first time here as a newly-registered member. Thank you for having me - I have so much respect for what you do. I stumbled upon this site by pure luck and am glad I did. Several years ago, I had interest in getting into EMS, but didn't really pursue it. Instead I followed a career path that I loved. Long story short, it didn't work out, and I'm in the process of leaving a job which proved to be difficult and quite unhappy. Late last year, out of the blue, I began to again feel a strong calling to EMS. Ever since that time, I have been unable to push it out of m
  10. Sorry I havent posted in a while. My life has been crazxy busy.... So, I am giving a street drug lecture as a conference... as I am wont to do on occasion, and a thought occurred to me. We are seeing these "Vaping" stores, products, patients explode in numbers in this area... an exponential increase in this nich market. Even among health care providers. Now I am NOT going to speculate the pro's and con's over traditional tobacco use....But I have a question. It seems to me only a manner of time before someone puts any number of illicit adulterants in the liquid they use for this. My gue
  11. Hey y'all I'm Brittany and I just recently graduated from high school and I am going to start EMT basic classes in January! I've struggled a little with figuring out what I wanted to become and eventually realized that my heart always knew what my head didn't and that is to become a EMT paramedic! I am more excited about starting classes and becoming an EMT and then eventually a paramedic than I have been about anything in my life, every day that's goes by I get more butterflies in my stomach and I was just wondering if y'all have any advice for me about EMT basic classes??
  12. Hi Guys, Ebay has brand new empty CGA 870 D tanks for around 50 bucks shipped. I am going to buy one for my home emergency kit. ( you never know, love thy neighbor and etc ) I have an EMT-B cert. I have never filled a tank before. Where in or near New York City can I have a personal D tank filled? and how much can I expect to pay ?
  13. Hello Instructors, I hope you all are doing well. I was just wondering, how many of you would be willing to allow a 15 year old student into one of your classes, if she were to turn 16 on the third day of class. The EMS program I've been looking at writes out its curriculum, and the first two classes are really just introductions and lectures about workforce safety (nothing too crazy), so, although it isn't technically "allowed," would a 15 year old, who is five days away from her 16th birthday (the third day of class), be able to join your class? Thank you in advance. Best Regard
  14. At my part time job teaching, Nitrous oxide is now in the AEMT scope. I know that in the 70's, 80's through the early 90's it was popular in some rural parts of the country and in the New England area but I honestly havent heard hardly anything about it in the past 20 years. I have heard its hard to even get FDA approved regulators for EMS anymore. I have two questions: 1- Does anyone out there have a NO specific skills sheet for credentialling this? 2- Is anyone planning on doing this? Is anyone currently doing this? 3- What are your lessons learned that might be useful for an educator who
  15. So I have been tasked with assisting a new EMS service startup company in small metro city serving roughly 95,000. What I am looking for is input from everyone on operations, pay, dispatch, equipment as if money is no object. What we have determined thus far: 3 ambulances staffed 24/7 2 backup ambulances 3 stations (new build) with Plymovent exhaust. 3 man crew (2 EMTs/ 1 paramedic) ABC Kelly shift 1 shift supervisor (ALS Equipped vehicle) Ambulances will be a Medium Duty Freightliner chassis.(meeting the new NFPA standard) 2 backup ambulances smaller Type I/ II Supervisor vehi
  16. Does anyone have experience with this company? I know that they lost a large contract last year due to a lack of oversight: http://www.ems1.com/ems-education/articles/1099477-Maine-EMS-company-loses-contract-after-training-scandal/ But the end of the article seems optimistic. I am hoping to take my EMT course here, as it is more convenient in respect to its location (it is held on the University of New England campus in Biddeford), but do not want to compromise my education or the certification that I hope to gain from it. Thank you for your replies.
  17. Hey guys and girls I advocated and pushed for mandatory education and training for EMT in crisis intervention. I wrote a resource guide for EMS Professionals The EMS Professional Rescuers Guide to Behavioral First Aide My hopes is many EMT and EMS pros can reduce injury and risk when dealing with hostile or a patient exhibiting crisis behavior. The crisis is never about the behavior. It's available in several electronic formats. barnes and Noble Nook > ( EMS Crisis Response Team Training Guide ) Amazon Nook > ( EMS Crisi Response Team Training Guide )
  18. I'm a Medic student in Texas and have just this past week I've ran two calls in which the patient past away. These where my first experiences to death in EMS. I really thought i would be more affected by their deaths, but i havent been. Maybe becaue I didn't know them before or never even heard them speak(both were tubed and out before I even saw them). On one call the patient's family was allowed into the room while the team was performing CPR. I like the fact that the doctor let them be in the room for closure. What are some of y'all's feeling on end of life treatment and family invol

  20. Hello dear U.S. friends! A member of my vollie squad will take a year at Portland university and she yesterday asked me if I know someone from Portland EMS to arrange a ride-along or at least a visit. She wants to become an english teacher, so she needs a guest year in the US and already is fluently speaking english, having relatives and some friends (though non-EMS) in Portland anyway. Start will be in summer semester 2013, so its not urgent - but I now just wanted to ask who might be from there. Looking forward to getting some emtcity contact for her, would be really cool!
  21. I have been in EMS for 12 years now and have finally landed a job that I love. I work in onsite construction site medicine and it's great. For years I worked private EMS on a bus and ended up hating it for a number of reasons so I quit. I have always wondered about people in other parts of the country/world who have jobs in the EMS field. What do you guys like and dislike about you job?
  22. I was lucky to have a good EMT instructor when I took my EMT-B class. He was fantastic full man with years of experience and good morals. He’s a fair, wise, knowledgeable and an all around nice guy. Yet he had a UN canny knack of teaching us the little things a text book could not possibly print. One thing he told us was that you will get to know your partners on the truck better than your best friend or even your spouse. I work with a fantastic couple of partners at the Ambulance Service, I spend more time with them then I do with my girl friend it seems. In EMS you entrust your life t
