    When do you guys wear masks

    I've worn a mask once that I remember... Now, SHOULD I wear a mask? That's another question. The answer is probably always going to be more than I actually do. Crack the window?

    EMT Student advice

    I say this all the time and this is another great opportunity. From my personal experience I highly recommend volunteering with a fire department if that's available near you (which it sometimes is not) you'll get experience and start learning the lay of the land so to speak. Generally...

    EMT School

    Everyone starts out with zero knowledge. What makes the difference are those willing to do the legwork and actually learn the material they need in order to be successful. If there were no terminology pre-reqs for the class your instructor should be aware and is hopefully making an effort to...

    National written questions

    You already took the class and put yourself through it all. I would recommend just finishing it through and taking the test. Having the card in hand will never hurt you.

    The Human Baloon

    So I ain't no doctor... But I thought I'd share an interesting call with you all. My paramedic partner and I responded to a home out in the middle of no-where the other night. It was probably about 2 in the morning as usual. The house was one of those gravel road backwoods sort of places with...

    EMT instructor - resources?

    I'll be teaching an EMT class at the end of the month and am compiling a list of helpful resources for the students (and also helpful instructor resources for myself). Does anyone use, or remember their instructor using, particular resources or activities that really stood out to them? I'd love...
