    No Ambulances Available

    If they're at level zero and still having calls for resources, then they legit need to be calling these guys: I only just a little. Sirens was a comedy, but if CFD isnt being given enough resources by the City to handle the calls, they have to start calling mutual aid such as private...

    SoCal first EMT job

    Might try reapply with McCormick after you get your State cert. Without it your simply unhireable, I doubt many ambulance companies would hire you without it. Simply to many other fully qualified candidates applying to take time on one currently unqualified candidate. Otherwise Care and AMR...

    I've been buying the Black Rifle Coffee Company stuff. I just finished a box of Silencer Smooth, and am on their Chocolate flavor, with a box of Hazelnut on standby. Doesn't actually taste chocolatey per say lol, but better than just being hot bean water sans creamer hahaha

    I've managed to largely replace soda and energy drinks with just coffee. Sometimes I drink it straight black, but often pour a little creamer. Been trying a keto style low carb diet. I'm hardly super strict with it, but have still managed to lose a few pounds. I'm still 210, my goal is 180...

    If you're not used to that much caffeine (and the other stuff they put in energy drinks), it can definitely hit you hard the first time. Me, I was one of those high school kids who didn't think twice about drinking a few sodas a day, and when I was in the Army, there were times we practically...
