    the 100% directionless thread

    Thank you, thank you, it has certainly been a roller coaster. I believe you've all met my new (and Oh so much better is every way) husband. He is registered here as LACoCowboyEMT. And he really is an EMT (yeah, we met on the job :hangs head:)

    Training in So.Cali?

    The reason most programs don't start til January is because most GOOD programs are run by colleges, on the college's semester system. You've missed the start of Fall term, so, will need to wait for the Spring term. Could always do the slightly accelerated Winter session, there are some...

    Not so much, since LACoFD made them one of their preferred programs to send the firefighter's their forcing to become medics to.

    EMS Tattoos

    Devil Dog, that really depends on the employer. There are apparently some that would prefer no ink at all. Of course, if your ink can be completely covered by normal clothing, I can't imagine them doing a strip search. My supervisors didn't know about my ink until I'd been working for almost...

    Need a back safety tip.

    How you handle this situation depends on many factors, including how tall you are. Yes, you can kneel on the bed.

    A proper 12 lead would've done wonders.

    Mr Brown, what you don't realize is, AMR owns Riverside county. Even more so than San Bernardino County.... My question to the OP is, who ran the initial 12 lead???? note, as stated under my training, I'm not even a medic student, just a lowly basic.
