    the 100% directionless thread

    My dad had an old CJ for the longest, then got a YJ in '95, so I've always wanted one. I finally did in Feb and have been wrenching on it since then. Saving up to re-gear and hopefully upgrade the D35 in the rear before too long.

    Stay Safe Out There - A PSA from Wu!

    Let me just say that I was only speaking on the interstate with the larger right hand shoulder. On surface streets I go left, or if there is a raised median, then may split between the two lanes down the middle.

    Kentucky EMT Indicted on Murder Charges after Crash

    DUI, well then I would'nt let him be on the truck anyway, it should have never reached the point of him being in the unit. That's why supervisors were made, and I think this is one of the rare circumstances where I would refuse to run a call.

    Stay Safe Out There - A PSA from Wu!

    And from the scene to the hospital. Last officer down call I ran, there were 3 lights to the interstate all of which were blocked, every on-ramp was blocked to the interstate, and the 3 lights off the exit were blocked. There were 5 motor units infront of our unit and 2 cars behind. IF...

    What does your agency ride in...

    No, the stretcher is latched in all the way, it is right up on the doors as you noted. Having already put a pt in one with a traction splint, place the pt on a LBB and then have that hanging off the head of the stretcher acts as an extension of the stretcher and allows the traction splint to...

    RAMPART Study

    My understanding is that they are trying to justify the logistical aspect of it for more agencies. Like I said, I havent had our inservice on the study yet, it was just mentioned in a CQI meeting. We will be participating as a pre-hospital EMS agency, not hospital wide.

    What does your agency ride in...

    Ok, so here is one of our 15 new units. A 2009 Sprinter 3500, with Medix Specialty Vehicles module. Only worked 2 shifts in them, so I'm still undecided on them. Maybe if I feel better in the next few days I'll write up a real "review" of them. Without flash on the checkerboard...

    "Ticker" box/RoadSafety-Do you have them?

    I have not had my inservice on the new units yet (tues), so I cannot comment. It is the one that basically replaces the rear-view mirror (which I don't like the idea of) and has a camera facing towards the cab, and another facing out through the windshield. We do not have reverse cameras on...
