    U.S. Paramedic to Ireland

    Are hats/snapbacks allowed to be worn by staff on ambulance?

    Being bald as a cue ball I really wish my service had allowed hats. We had to comb a field for an ejected driver and I got scortched.

    Phlebotomy

    I said national but meant state. The material they have to cover is in my opinion overkill. The book is thicker than my paramedic textbook.

    Rubber bullets or shot gun?

    Actually rubber bullets at almost point blank range. Less lethal rounds, key phrase less lethal. Still pretty damn dangerous.

    Rubber bullets or shot gun?

    Saw something similar at a counterprotest. Treatment options? Definetly rubber bulllets in in my experience.

    Are hats/snapbacks allowed to be worn by staff on ambulance?

    I'd give it a pass. Unless it's a an issued cap I'd leave it at home. Edit: at the service I was at hats were not allowed.
