I added an infectious line to my review of systems for the standard COVID questions. I also have a line at the end to the effect that no signature was obtained due to infection control precautions. That’s about it. Oh- we also have a tab in the crew field of ESO for PPE now, too.
It's also a Kindle Daily Deal on Amazon today- get it for $1.99! https://smile.amazon.com/Dreamland-True-Americas-Opiate-Epidemic-ebook/dp/B00U19DTS0/ref=lp_6165851011_1_6?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1592177473&sr=1-6
There's really not a separate fireline EMT cert. If you have your FFT2 and EMT, you can get EMTF on your red card.
I regularly go out as an EMPF, but it's been a long time since wildland was my full-time job. Bearing that in mind, the crew EMT role is secondary to the firefighting role...
I have 2 bags- one lives at work and has my rain coat, hi-viz vest, ear protection, a pair of sunglasses, and some random spare batteries and other stuff. That one is a 5.11 Rush 6
The other one goes back and forth to work and home on my bike with me and has my iPad, Kindle, safety glasses...
According to command staff, our cardiac arrest calls are more than double the same time frame last year. I think it's a little COVID and a little people avoiding care. It's certainly gotten easier to convince people with minor complaints to follow-up with their PCP for their foot pain for 3 weeks.
@captaindepth I believe you and I work different shifts... anecdotally my shifts have been pretty consistent volume wise and I still can’t get off on time. I don’t work during peak bar time and I don’t work rush hour and I still can’t get off on time ever.
