Another new guy, but perhaps a little different

Recommended Posts

So, I am now in EMT class, again. I took it once before many years ago and really enjoyed it. However I was never able to work EMS. At the time I took the class, I was also in backgrounds for the Sheriffs Dept in my home county. So when I was hired as a Deputy, I was asked to let my EMT certification expire, as they did not want any liability and did not want to provide me with any materials. 

I left law enforcement for many reasons, after 5 years of service to them, considered going back, but the timing just wasnt right for me personally. I began driving a Semi truck hauling hay, and later hazmat, and hazmat took me to Los Angeles. Recently the wife and I wanted to move back closer to our families, and I was tired of driving a truck and dealing with hazwaste and bio-hazard medical research waste. So we moved up here. I worked for a short time as a propane install specialist, but left when I took my paid family leave for when my daughter was born. After that I had to get onto disability, as a hand injury I didn't take proper care of when I broke my hand, really came back and bit me. getting ready for my second surgery now. So, here I am, back in EMT school for a second time. This time to stay.

Welcome!  Lots of seasoned folks here if you have any questions :)

NO one as seasoned - or salty as Scubanurse.

I know the feeling. I quit posting here about the same time I quit practicing.

I might try posting a little just to see how much I have forgotten.

Enjoy your class friend.
