I know I need to get out of EMS. Probably out of fire service also.
The reason for it is, I know I am not good at any of these two. I have been doing both for years, and I know my co-workers/co-volunteers don't trust me (in a professional sense, not in a personal). I know I am not confident at...
The old, gray-haired wizard smiled and looked at the dragon fighter candidate.
“Welcome to Stofferkrim, Mr. Dragonslayer. So you moved here from Roamfolk, if I recall correctly?”
“Yes, sir. My family and I moved here, so I…”
“Perfectly understandable. I looked at your resume, and it is very...
This must be an ex-USSR thing, at least I couldn't find anything like this when I googled it in English :) Anyway, here's what you can do with some old IV tubing and a lot of free time on your hands:
I remember these from when I was in a hospital as a kid.
PITTSBURGH -- Authorities say an elderly man pointed a gun at an ambulance crew then fired a shot into the ceiling after the medics entered the wrong apartment while responding to a call in Wilkinsburg.

I'm not sure about it...
I'm looking for opinions/impressions about this company. I might start looking for a part-time EMT job this summer; Transcare does some IFTs and some 911s in the vicinity of where I live and I was wondering what they are like.
Thanks in advance.
This question is primarily for those who work campus EMS but input from anyone is appreciated.
How do you educate public about alcohol-related medical emergencies? Most importantly, how should a layperson differentiate between "OK, he had a little too much, let him sleep" and "we better call...
Didn't see it discussed here yet. In fact, I didn't know someone claimed it to be a hoax until I found link to this in an EMS community on my livejournal's friend list (for those unfamiliar - it's like a facebook group... but better).
So I was driving to work this morning and turned my radio on in the middle of some program (so I might have missed something). What I did hear I did not like.
They were telling a story about a woman who had an onset of stroke-like symptoms. She did not want to call 911 because she wanted to go...
