    Had a DOA, a crazy vent run, and a code save today. I feel like a real paramedic. Also had to extricate a 10 y/o from a bicycle, but that was my partners run.

    Eric Holder: Police should carry drugs antidote

    Testing for the county just north of me for a PT gig in the morning, along with 3 other medics. Our protocols are pretty good, but they have levophed, nitro drips, TXA.......all the goodies we don't have. Rumor is they plan to hire all of us assuming we don't blow it.
