2020 does suck, but there has been a lot that’s happened this year that I’m really thankful for. I focus on that and try to just take it day by day.
For sure. We’re doing ok overall. It gave me an inadvertent extra week or so off, and I get to enjoy turkey with the fam. Wish I could taste it though😃

Turkey is in the oven. Pray that the fire gods bless us with no interruptions.

Annnnddddd traffic collision with extrication.
Our Union actually arranged for each station to get catered Thanksgiving dinner delivered. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, veggies, pie... plus some in the community donated even more pie. We have enough food we were inviting PD and Ocean Safety to drop by and make themselves a plate 😁 (only reason we didn't invite EMS is because the two closest ambulances are stationed at the two neighboring fire stations so they (should) be covered already)

Happy thanksgiving y'all. Try to find something positive this year. It's been a rough one.

Well the hour long call didn’t dry out the bird. Thanksgiving dinner was a success even though it was a hour and a half late.

Well I'm Fire so we have our Local IAFF (HFFA 1463). But our EMS is a County Third Service so they're union as well (I wanna say they're part of the Local United Public Workers (UPW) shop? I'm not sure off the top of my head...)

The two neighboring counties both use AMR for full range EMS, and both those AMR shops are Union as well (the 4th county here is Fire based)

I’d love to get my AMR branch unionized.

IA Med is running a 60% off sale, so went and bought their flight medical provider refresher. Might as well knock out all these CE's I need to start paying attention to here soon.

Of course, supervisors love hearing about unions.

Fun fact. Its exactly 25 yards from the top of my stairs to the back wall of my bedroom.
Plus a few more inches after the bolt goes through the drywall.

What happens when the kids flinch?
As long as it's their first experience, it should be fine. If it's not their first time... pliers, spackle, putty knife, and painting supplies might be necessary.

For some reason when reading this I couldn't help but look at it from a Bugs Bunny cartoon viewpoint.
