    poem critique?

    Hey all. Some of the flow is off in this, but I'm working on it...slowly but surely. :wacko: Any critiques or ideas to make the flow better? I know some of you are fire-fighters... so if there is anything in there that's WAY off from common/standard procedures, please let me know? Thanks...

    So what's up with the "rivalry" between cops, firefighters and emts/medics? In some cases, it seems more like barely-contained hatred. And it's not just the individual; it's the person in the uniform. I mean you have an emt walk into a room with a cop, and said emt does all he can to make sure...

    Women's Gall's EMT pants

    Brand new women's EMT pants by Gall's, bought them off Ebay but the crotch hangs WAY too low for me. They are size 12 x 31 (which equals about size 5 in womens pants). I'd like to sell them for the same price; $22 for the pants, $5 for shipping.

    Ok... placement of the groin straps... Last year in my class, we were told to really see-saw them, and to get them in the crack, "like a thong." This year, I was trying to teach the new basics to do that, and heard from the grapevine that one of the students said I had "something up my crotch"...

    odd scenario?

    A paramedic friend of mine was telling me about a run he had been on the other morning. Said they were paged out for a 36 year old PNB female. Got on scene, found a 33 year old PNB female, cool to the touch, with her jaw clenched shut. He said that the other medic tried everything to get an...

    things you will never live down

    We've all got those stupid things we've done or said that someone remembers. Those stupid things that we will NEVER live down.. What are they? Last year in my basic class, my partner and I, (before the b***h abandoned me); were in the cardiac station. My "patient" was having difficulty...

    first alone call

    So I'm 9 miles away from my mom's house, heading back to my dad's house so I could go to work this morning. I was on the road a little after 8:30. I had my radio in my car, and (as I said), I was about 9 miles or so away. I heard our tones go off so I pulled my car to a stop. All I heard was the...

    stuttering kitty

    Thanks CelticTigress for this... got it from your myspace... :ph34r: A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. "Human beings are the only animals that stutter", she says. A little girl raises her hand. "I had a kitty-cat who stuttered", she volunteered. The...

    EMS = Perversion?

    This may be a really dumb question - but are there any EMS professionals that aren't perverted? I'm an instructor's aide in the EMT-B class that I just graduated from. It's both Tuesday and Thursday nights with 2 different classes. Tuesday, one of the aides is hounding me to sleep with him. I...

    Flight 93

    Just got done watching Flight 93, mopped up my face, and decided to write my "review" on it. I don't know how to put it into words. I don't want to say "it's a great film" because it portrays a horrible event in American history. But personally, I think it is a good movie. It portrays the...

    My best friend was killed in a car accident 2 years ago tomorrow. He was riding in the back seat of his grandparents' car with his little brother; and grandparents were in the front. A pickup truck hit them going approximately 83 mph (according to the experts). The back seat was pushed up an...

    let's remodel the world in red tape.

    So I sent in for my state license 2 months ago. I've talked to people who said they've gotten it back in as little as 2 weeks, and as long as a month. I'm getting frustrated, so I called the state's department of health/ems stuff. Know what I get? An answering machine. Well... at least we know...
