    the 100% directionless thread

    During the last season of ER I made sure that everyone in my house was absolutely silent so I wouldn't miss a single thing because I knew it was going away. When I was a 8 I watched M*A*S*H* reruns and fell in love with Alan Alda. He's still dreamy if you ask me. I also watched Scrubs and...

    THe REal Reason you became an EMT-B

    The volunteer department I joined is having me go through Fire Academy. They said as of last month it's mandatory. What a great time to join. :wacko: I can't complain though, the more training the better. I told em to bring it on.

    I'm thinking about going for my EMT-I

    In my state (Indiana) Advanced-Basic is between Basic and Intermediate. They can start IV's, do 4-leads, and a few other things Basics can't do.

    Southland is pretty sweet, but I've always dug the medical drama thing. It's sad really.

    in the process of becoming an EMT

    If you have any local volunteer department, talk with them and see if they'd be willing to train you as a driver. Mine does so long as you're current on your shots and trained in CPR/AED. I found it helpful to be on a real scene as an observer. Just remember to stay out of the way, pay...

    "Allergic reaction? Call an ambulance" says CNN

    I honestly didn't know that there were differences (ALS vs BLS) until I started class. I was as ignorant as the rest. Education is the key to so many things. Fortunately as an EMT-B I can also do epi-pens for patients in anaphylaxis.
