    Quick question for the Home Ec crowd: I have a glass measuring cup (Target brand version of Pyrex style, pretty sure it's regular glass though), that was used to measure bleach for laundry. If I wash it out (like say rinse and then put in the dishwasher), is it safe to use for foodstuffs again...

    Movie Marathon Thread

    I'm excited MCU finally returned with WandaVision. I binge watched all 3 released episodes the other day lol (Is this how we really used to watch TV, waiting a whole week for new episodes?? Seems so long ago lol). Supposedly the Disney+ MCU shows are going to tie directly into the movies, and...

    Well Kaui to Oahu is 63 miles, Maui to Oahu is 116 miles, and Big Island (Hawaii Island) is like 200 miles. Not sure how far regular rotary wing flights go on normal, but the islands are a tad bit further apart than a lot of people seem to realize (granted a commercial flight from Hilo on Big...

    Tattoos

    Not necessarily, it all comes down to local cultural norms. For example when I was in LA, it was very militaristic, anti-tattoo, better be clean shaven, etc Some places have absolutely zero issues with full sleeve tatts and beards and goatees and the OPs tattoo won't be a major issue...

    COVID VACCINE

    Yeah, I was reading an article talking about how after the first dose of the vaccine, you're only 50% protected, then after the second dose, it goes up to 95%, but takes a week or two after that dose to get there. So definitely not an immediate thing, hence people getting the first shot but...

    Tattoos

    Yes I did, and I remember for both the Firefighter test, and the EMT Ambulance Operator (AO) test they did exactly that. I also remember a handful of people actually getting up and leaving. At least if you are gonna have a super strict tattoo policy they were very upfront about it before you...

    Tattoos

    I knew an FD that would flat out trash any applicants who had any visible tattoos anywhere in PT uniform (t-shirt and gym shorts). That was for EMT and FF applicants. On the other hand, most private companies really only cared if any tats were on your face or neck, a small wrist one would...

    Well on that note, and in the spirit of Directionlessness, The first two episodes of WandaVision were pretty good. Idk if it's gonna be Mandalorian level of hype, but it is really nice to see something new from the MCU (not just new content, but something a lil different than the normal...

    Uber is def good for working part time around our crazy hours... but yeah, from my experiences, is NOT a job I wanna do full time... My thoughts on reading about your workplace, let me just say McDonalds is pretty much always hiring, probably doesn't pay any particularly worse, and should be...

    Stressed guys messdd up on some calls.

    If you are on an ambulance you typically have two trained providers. When you make patient contact (whether that's after traipsing through an apt building or SNF, or they met you on the curb with their luggage) is that while one person (usually the attendant) starts talking to the patient, you...

    Shoulder gurney straps

    I don't think I've ever documented the specific types and number of seatbelts used, and have never once had a problem. No more so than I've ever specified in documentation that we secured the gurney in the antlers and latching mechanism, or that all the ambulance doors were closed prior to...

    Why do we love the stretcher in the United States?

    Our EMS uses the Ferno Pro Flexx cots that can fold into a chair, and generally seem to be much lighter than a Stryker, so we can get the gurney into houses and hallways far more often. We won't take them over anything resembling stairs more than a couple steps, and if the patient is capable of...

    Naw we good, I was more just quoting the OP 😁 just cuz Anyways we hit 11 calls yesterday. But besides a few routine medical assists, some were wierd kinda nonsense. Like the lady who called for help deactivating her smoke alarm and it turned out to just be a low battery chirp, ok, not too bad...
