    Official Volunteer EMT

    I got the volunteer position! I am actually very excited about it! Volunteering and comminity service has always been incredibly important to me and volunteer EMS is a dying art- maybe this is the way to go. That will keep me busy while waiting for the paying job, eh?

    body cameras

    I couldnt find any posts about this so I hope Im not repeating... I wanted to get your guys' opinions on body cameras since there is a social outcry. I know there has been discussion about extra cams in the back: I feel as if this would also be a HIPPA violation, but aside from that, on your...

Tried to control the bleeding for 15-20 minutes and he bled through 2 bandaids and 2 occlusive 2x3s. My boys and I were visiting my brother...

    First real shift!

    I volunteered my first shift yesterday- 12 hours... No calls. But I did get to know my former instructor better and got a lot if studying done! I will probably do more volunteering this summer. It will look good on the resume when I look for a job in August- having some experience. If we get a...

    Quick! Lady's pants!

    Ok, on very short notice (next week) my instructor invited me to run a shift with her. I'm almost positive that should we get a call (probably not) I'll be able to actually do something since I passed the class (NREMT is scheduled for the following week). Any recommendation for cargo pants? I'll...
