    EMS and marriage

    Nobody cares. As much as you want to be special, you're not. Well, she's not wrong. It's not a contest. Talk TO each other about your days, not AT each other. You might be the problem.

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    Up until about 13 months ago, you could do what every other armed profession does and just ignore it.

    Marijuana Pharmacology - FOAMed Video

    You were talking about alcohol being socially acceptable. Manufacturers pay a lot of money to lobbyist to ensure it is socially acceptable. Mexican cartels just cut peoples heads off, because socially acceptable (and legalized Marijuana) is money out of their pocket.

    My COVID year as a medic.

    There were many factors that worked in my favor, mostly hospitals either weren't moving patients, or they did it before they were HEMS sick. If we saw them, they were almost always in renal failure and transfer was a hail mary. The one critical I did have was quite possibly the sickest person...

    My COVID year as a medic.

    Other than being heavily inconvenienced along with the rest of the country, it was a normal year. None of us caught covid, nobody we know caught covid. My wife dealt with several covid patients in the ICU, I only saw 2 (known) one critical and one that just happened to test positive for covid...

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    While the optics would be bad, a quick Google search shows at least 5 instances of persons dying from a punch, just on the first page.

    Everyone is a paramedic.

    I used to care because I worked hard to earn the title of Paramedic. Now........well now I have a lot more important things to worry about. What people call my profession doesn't crack the top 100.

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    Anytime something even slightly becomes political, emotions rule. Like it or not, the politics can't be ignored. We are of course discussing arming a group of responders just a few short months after enduring protests over armed responders.

    Dying patient left on apartment floor

    I think where the issue lies, is they committed themselves to the initial decision and were unable/unwilling to accept an alternative when things didn't go as planned. Even an hour in, if they had transported him, this PR nightmare could have been avoided.

    I had really high hopes for the Braves this year. I didn't even get to watch a game and Manfred tarnished the entire season with politics. Can't even be entertained anymore without someone ruining it.

    Dying patient left on apartment floor

    We had a very similar situation locally and I can tell you that nobody wins in this. I don't believe that body cam footage is adequate enough to determine punishment for fire. It's very plausible that the patient was clamped down so tight they didn't have palpable pulses, and labored...

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    I'm sure I would. I've carried a knife daily since I graduated high school, it's just something I don't think about anymore.

    Should EMS/Fire be armed?

    Something that stood out to me uptrheadd about pocket knives that I thought back on. I've been in 3 different jails working EMS, and nobody ever took my knife from me.
