    Tattoos in ems

    I don't really see the big deal with having tattoos while being on an Ambulance or any other job for that matter. I've had very pleasant conversations with patients talking about their tattoos. I may see the problem that management or other higher up may have with them, but as long as they...

    Rising Fuel Costs

    Hasn't effected us so far at all. Everything is still as it usually goes. But I foresee some problems coming in the future.

    anybody see the advertisements for 'the moment of truth' on fox

    Just to add a little something and a get a little off track. I find FOX to be one of the worst networks on TV. Even though just about all news stations spew crap on their network, FOX is one of the biggest culprits of this. Not to mention all the "reality" TV shows they come up with each year...

    Those silly firefighters

    Haha. :P I heard about this on the radio one day on the way to work. I was laughing my a** off and feeling sorry for the poor woman at the same time. Makes you wonder sometimes what people are thinking. Or the lack their of.

    Agreed. They just keep pumping shows out like that and it cheapens television more than it already is.

    Weird and Funny Calls over the Radio

    Another one I just thought of. At around 12 or 1 Am our PD got dispatched to someone laying in the middle of the road who was trying to get a "moon-tan". Dispatch: Car 4 and 3, go check out a possible deer running around the middle of the road. Car 4: A doe? Car 3: A deer? Car 4: A female deer?

    Weird and Funny Calls over the Radio

    We were sitting in our squad building and the scanner was on. We heard two of our officers get dispatched for a domestic at one of the apartment buildings and one of the officers in the background didn't realize he was talking too loud. ^_^ Dispatcher: Quarters to 8 and 4, respond to E...

    Vol. Voice- Looking the part:Why our appearance matters when we’re responding to call

    When I am on duty I always have my squads t-shirt/sweatshirt on and a pair of jeans or ****ie's work pants on. If it's not my duty night and I happen to be away from my house where all my stuff is, when a call comes in and im responding. I usually look pretty decent. Just wearing my t-shirt and...

    Stupid, Stupid Concerns - Working EMS

    I have the exact same problem. My biggest fear going through EMT School and a bit still now is negotiating my way to and from a call. Maybe what you should look into is do what my squad did. For your city/town make a directions sheet with all of the streets in your area and how to get there from...

    I keep a kit in my trunk with just about what you would find in a first-in bag. Also my stethoscope with an Adult and Pediatric BP cuff, a box of gloves, and a CPR Barrier mask.

    The first part is easy, im an EMT. But Bandit, comes from the movie "Smokey and the Bandit". I loved that movie and watched it all the time growing up and still like it. Just loved the crazy antics and the way he would always throw the Cops for a loop. As for my signature, I saw the "Annie...

    What do you call an ambulance?

    Rig or Bus. Or when we see the van ambulance, it's a "vanbulance".

    Also it's annoying when you run out of fuel in a diesel because than usually you have to bleed all the air out of the lines. Which is a pain. :blink:
