    Who carries a med kit in their vehicle off-duty?

    I keep a fairly extensive kit in my truck, but it is for myself & my family only. I don't stop out at accidents and such when off duty.

    The Gun Thread

    Plenty of potential wife replacements out there, not so much for the WW2 M1. I say roll the dice and buy the gun :)

    Hanging up the flightsuit

    Yup, completely agree. I love the job and my company, unfortunate I’m just plateaued and there isn’t any more upward mobility. My family and what’s best for our future take precedence, so it makes it a little easier knowing it’s the best choice for us.

    Hanging up the flightsuit

    Thanks man, I appreciate it! I would have loved to get into something like that as well. Unfortunately, there aren’t many opportunities like that in my area and the pipeline for promotional opportunities within my program pretty much depend on you living in Pittsburgh. My wife doesn’t want to...

This opportunity was unexpected, but presented itself at just the right time, and the...

    Video Laryngoscope Thread

My grandparents recently passed away and the money they left us we dumped into a 529 for my...

    The (Long-Term) Finance Thread

    This is all solid advice. The only thing I disagree with now a days is the whole "don't buy anything on credit or credit cards" push. There is A TON of money to be made buy utilizing credit cards AND being responsible and paying them off every month. My wife and I have two primary cards we use...

    EMT or Athletic Trainer

    It's kinda concerning the amount of people talking about IFT and "in control"..... Apparently some people need a lesson on EMTALA and Physician responsibility when still inside their facility.

    Criminal Backgrounds and DMV

    From another perspective, maybe it wasn't even a terrible choice... Some people need to catch an *** whooping every once in a blue moon🤕

    Helicopter Stuff and Things

    Sounds like they picked up that construction black mesh fence with the rotor arch during lift (FOD) and were able to set it down from fairly minimal altitude. Skids did exactly what they/re supposed to do.

    Helicopter Stuff and Things

    Yup Cleveland Metro LifeFlight, dual pilot and they're a Metro Aviation program. Good program, and hats off to that pilot. That is exactly how I would want that scenario to end!
