    When do you call for a lift assist?

    I dont think I've ever been on a call with a shortage of FF's or EMT's standing around. Like I just posted in the volunteer thread, we all have pagers- when the tones drop everyone and their uncle comes running. Usually the extra people are good about staying outside/in the rigs unless needed...

    Volunteer Squads

    Our dept is volly fire & EMS. We all carry pagers and most respond to the station. A few of us (myself included) live either on the outskirts of the district, or slightly out of district - we usually respond directly to the scene. The rule of thumb is that if you have to drive by a scene to...

    Glucometer Blood...

    If its a non diabetic trauma pt, we get the blood from the IV. For any diabetic problem or altered LOC of unknown etiology we use the finger. As its been said before, if they're consious they will more than likely tell you which finger to use. As a diabetic, I can tell you that in my opinion...

    Childrens Drawings

    I'm sorry if the offended you or anyone. Humor kills stress for me; we lose patients every day but some hurt more. I have a lot of stress to kill, perhaps I should not have shared the photos with the members of emtlife. One of my co-workers sent them to me in order to cheer me up. Humor is the...
