Walking into the ER while wearing bunker pants (My employer requires you to wear them if you're in shorts) with a partner I've known since high school:
Nurse (who I've know for many years as a friend of the family)- Well look at these two big burly men
Partner- Sorry he's all mine
The look on...
My partner a few days ago:
Us- Dispatch THE squad x is in service
Dispatch- That's clear THE squad x
From the same guy a few months ago:
Us- Dispatch squad x is en route to mercy starting mileage of woooooooo.........9.8
Dispatch- To mercy, 9.8 (Laughter in the background)
Time consuming? Im not sure about where your from, but my department is relatively quick at extrication, it would literally take two minutes to set up the tools and get the door off. And it would a good call for some of the new guys to get some practice with the tools.
My knowledge on this is quite limited, but I assumed that in the event of an arrest caused by prolonged respiratory depression/hypoxia that it may improve the chances of survival. I dont have the knowledge & training on that drug so please correct me if I am wrong.
