    What shows do you and your partner like to binge watch while you have down time on shift?

    What other things do you do to pass the time?

    What is the dumbest moment you've had on a call?

    Pick one or Pick three, the choice is yours....

    It varies greatly for what I spend my downtime doing. It can be watching Netflix/Hulu, studying, playing phone games, playing with CAD software on my computer, walking/running, doing some basic workout with resistance bands, listening to music, or writing lesson plans/scenarios for the EMT class.

    Probably what my last shift was. Asides from having a brief meeting at the office, we never left our station for the entire shift. Ironically our chief told us we had the busiest January since 2004, it didn't even seem to busy at all.

    Well. Bringing in the grants doesn't happen by itself. I work at a desk when I'm not running calls. It's super fun.
