@Old Tracker kid was trying too hard, felt a numbness and paralysis of his legs with a sudden back pain. Passed the nail bed test.

@DesertMedic66 is it that common there that a training program gets used?
From what they said they have done training for a handful of other fire departments.

When your getting into the engine after finishing a fire prevention inspection and a homeless guy decides to lay down on the ground two feet in front of the engine to flag you down, so you call EMS, do an assessment and when the ambulance arrives he starts yelling and cussing at the medic and EMT because although he wanted to go to the hospital, didnt wamt to actually stand up and get into the gurney...

@Lo2w Using exuberance to make up for lack of technique.:rolleyes:
A for effort but my medic and I had to clarify I think 3 times to make sure we heard right.

We carry the 2MG for either IN/IM as well as a 4MG auto for IN. Most of the fire and PD first response have moved to the 4mg. So when they said "6 narcan" we were like, "ugh...pink or white?"

Never mind the dosage, I think I would have had a hard time not laughing at the dude.

Got a new balun for my HF ham rig and so far, it seems to work reasonably well. Of the bands I've tried it on, my radio's onboard tuner can't find a match on any 15M frequency. Everything else gets a match within about 1 second. Still getting quite a bit of noise but I'll work on getting rid of the QRM on another day. Also I'm thinking of picking up an extra shift today (Saturday). I'm probably going to try to pick up 3 shifts every 2 weeks... maybe for the next few months. Got some expensive stuff coming down the pike...

Debating joining Costco vs Sam's Club.

Tgeres 4 Costcos on the island vs. 2 Sam's Clubs (both Sam's near-ish to a Costco). All 4 Costcos have gas lames, only 1 Sam's does...but the one that dies is the one that's closer to me than any of the Costcos and quite frankly that's like THE main thing I wanna use my membership for at either place lol.

Plus Sam's membership is $45 vs $60 for Costco

My family all have Costco memberships and that's why I was first thinking about them...but now I'm leaning towards joining Sam's Club lol
Groupon it, my dude. Last I checked Sam's was 25 on there.
And yep I came back from a 2 year hiatus to tell someone to Groupon.
Try to keep myself browsing here every once in a while, but I got out of ems. Debating on whether or not to get back into it .
How's everyone been?

It will always blow my mind that the 1 person in a very small group I recommend go to a higher level hospital insist on going to the community hospital that ships so much out....I don't do that often dammit, just listen.
