Anyone here activated? DRT, DMAT, FEMA? I got the call but sadly could not get off work this week.
Now just 7mph winds short of a category 5 storm, Ida is expected to annihilate the Louisiana coast this afternoon. Severe flooding and unsurvivable storm surge expected. All this to a place that...
I wasn’t really sure where to post this, so I figured here is as good a place as any.
The pandemic brought me more experience and more growth both professionally and personally as one could imagine.
I went on multiple contracts for COVID assignments that have rewarded me richly down many...
Holy smokes, Batman! The plaintiffs (employees) will receive “$100,000 each, on average.”
WOWZA! Plus they have to start paying overtime after 8 hours and double time after 12...
Hey guys. Does anyone know of any states that are fast tracking certification for paramedics with minimal hoops during this COVID thing or that already did prior to?
I have my NR and CCT cert, just need a state cert/license pronto... thanks in advance.
Looking to see what’s out there.
I saw one from OnsiteOHS... anyone know of any other contract agencies that are spot hiring medics or EMTs? This is for COVID related jobs... not for AMR or your department.
Does NREMT still mail wallet cards and wall certificates for framing?
My renewal shows approved for over a month now, but it says please print your new certificate.
Budget cuts or do they send them en masse later?
Anyone have a line on movie and television production work as a medic or medical consultant? Has anyone done this work, either union or non-union? To clarify- I do not mean a private ambo/event company that does standby type stuff at on movies.
Google did not turn up the information I’m...
Due to the nature of the work and the sad truth that these crashes are far too common, combined with related threads that are often spread out among the news, employment, lounge, and HEMS/AMT forums, I have created this thread for all HEMS/AMT adverse events. A single point for discussions...
Happy New Year, all.
It’s almost the end of the year, the decade, and the generation. 2020 is knocking on the door and will be here in just a few days.
I am a proponent of bettering oneself, and I love to see others plan for and achieve success.
What are your goals to improve or change your...
I mean... do military aviators crash this much? Commercial? Everyone wants to talk intubation being a hot issue and suicide prevention...
Yeah, they’re issues, sure... BUT
Here is an in-your-face issue that get swept away after a few weeks.
Why in the **** are EMS aircraft always crashing and...
Y’all seen this?! Haha. I had to laugh.
Wait until the whackers get ahold of these bad boys.
Reminds me of a goal post... going for a code 3 field goal back at the station!
Are we allowed to say Merry Christmas still? Is it too early? I don’t care...
Merry Christmas you savages. 🎄
And I hope 2020 brings you joy and treats you well. Be safe and be good to each other out there.
Promising to be a walloping storm to FL and possibly the SE coast.
Anyone here going on a team or live in the AO? Going as DRT/DMAT/USAR/other? Lots of resources are being prepped and deployed for Dorian.
Stay safe and good luck. I wish I was going, but I’ll be sitting this one out watching...
Dr. Bledsoe's recent article makes some great points here. He was my medical director for sometime in Las Vegas. It was interesting to bring him patients in the trauma center, being the man who wrote the very textbooks I studied in P school... Intimidating to say the least as a baby medic.
Hey guys, I wanted to ask those of you who have renewed your FP-C this year your new cert expires?
My first one was 4 years, and this was my first recert. It says it doesn't expire until 2027. Is that an error or is it really good for eight years after your first recert? Granted, I had like 500...
