Back in 2002, when I first started my education on saving lives :rolleyes: , I used to always joked with my classmates. That Enrique Iglesias "Hero" song was always on the radio, and during clinicals I'd whisper to my patients "Let me be your hero," like that spanish guy would do at the beginning of the song. Most laughed and thought it was funny. Others gave me a weird look.

I don't really have an EMS song right now, but what songs would you really associate with EMS / FF? What song would you play if you were coding? What about if you were in a cheesy movie and needed the stereotypical song?

LOL, lemme see if any songs pop into my head while I'm out there on the "mean streets" of Commack today.

I DO have a "line" though. In my review of the pt's medical history, I almost always ask middle aged men if they're pregnant. Most of them laugh and it relieves some tension, others take a second to figure out what I'm asking, then go "um, no". HEHEHE.

I've always wanted to do that....

I do often ask "sex" I've gotten the usual "yes" and "often" and some strange looks...

When I was working over in Willmar MN, my partner had a phone with various downloaded ringtones on it......so, depending on the call, we would play the 'CHiPs' theme, or 'Mission Impossible' through the PA speaker as we headed down 1st street.....strangely it seemed to work better than the weeeewaaas!

The Roof is on Fire--Uproar...very appropriate for the Truck Company.

I love Fear the Reaper by BOC!

Didn't some cops get fired for singing or putting parts of that song over MDT's when a pain-in-the-*** nightclub was burning "We don't need no water, let the mother-f@$*er burn..." Local news got wind and went ballistic.....

So? I am not a cop...And I am smart enough (hence I am also a fireman ;) ) not to transmit anything I will or can regret if the media ever got wind of it!

AC/DC always gets me in the EMS mood, and my favorite Metallica song, "Creeping Death".
