    Bougie storage

    Just had a difficult airway, used the bougie after I missed 1st attempt. We keep it either curled up, or in a semi circle, which leads to it being bent out of shape. Does anyone keep theirs straight, and if so, what do you store it in?

    Florida EMS

    Polk is Fire based. Some are Firefighters, others are single resource. Volusia is fire based, not sure of FF/EMS or EMS under fire. Lake/Sumter dissolved, Rut/Roh has Sumter, Lake is EMS only, but appears poorly managed. Pinellas is run (poorly) by Death Star, err, SunStar. Hillsborough is...

    Florida EMS

    Hillsborough County hires Paramedic onlys. Crappy pay, about 32k a year, but awesome protocols.

    Florida EMS

    AmeriScare, TranScare, or A$$holes, Monkeys and Recarts? Either way, nothing really good there. A few good apples and a LOTTA bad.

    My former project billed for ALS assessment. If we assess and release to BLS, we bill. mONOc (cant spell MONOC without O NO!!!) just plain sucks. They DO have some good people, but I saw a lot of lazyness, stupidity, low pay and overworked people. They also left a LARGE swath of southern Ocean...

    DC Firefighters whine about name change.

    When you have poor, rural areas where there is apathy/no time available from younger members of the community, and thats all they can afford, then there is no choice for the community. I think it is nothing short of a disgrace that we need to rely on those that should be retired and enjoying...

    Or its 70 year old volunteers having MIs from being awoken by tones, 18 year old volunteers who drive like morons in their POV and crash. While our LODD yearly totals stay the same, we have also expanded what is known as an LODD. Poor example.

    DC Firefighters whine about name change.

    Medic 6 in AC, one random weekend, we got SPANKED. All weekend long. 20 was the minimum, 30 was the busiest. I left quarters at 1030, just catching up on charts. Some nights were slow, others busier. All depends on how good your BLS is, and how restless the natives decide to get. I don't...

    DC Firefighters whine about name change.

    No arguement here. FireACT, SAFER, etc, all that money should be kept at the local level. The STATES are required to provide a Medicade program. Out of a $70 billion dollar budget (roughly) in the state of Florida, (roughly) $20 billion will be going to Medicade. How could that money be spent...

    Ha! I am not IAFF at all. Our medicine does not "suck". Take a look at the CIRC study that was just concluded, we were one of the few depts chosen to participate in this international study. Our protocols are among some of the best in the state, are highly progressive, so please, do not tell...

    DC Firefighters whine about name change.

    Every Ambulance, Engine, Truck, Rescue Squad, Reserve apparatus, Chiefs car, supervisor vehicle, repair truck, etc, etc, etc now has to be taken in from the road, changeover needs to occur OR a company needs to be placed out of service so a freaking sticker can be placed on. Now factor in fuel...

    DC Firefighters whine about name change.

    Yes. They have not had a raise in 5 years, and now the admin is gonna blow 100s of thousands of dollars on patches, stickers, decals and the man hours to replace them. Further, "FEMS" is a horrible acronym, and it goes on to kill decades upon decades of tradition. While I am one who is ALL for...
