Did my annual Water Safety refresher today. Basically a "Light" version of Lifeguarding, swimming in the ocean 600m with fins, mask and snorkel, going over some basic search techniques and rescue techniques and the like. (Imagine if our Ocean Safety Lifeguards and Search and Rescue companies were the "ALS" this was the "BLS" first responder version lols)

Fun way to spend the first few hours on shift

You guys are making me want to shell out cash on a new bike instead of riding my lightly used 2011 model for a little while longer.



In other news, still flying extremely sick people. I need a nap.

My partner always puts his bag on the passenger seat when I’m with a patient. This time his broken water bottle spilled all over the seat so I’m now in the back of the ambulance. >.>

Mind me asking how you got exposed?
Wife got it while we were travelling a week or so ago. Since she and I went pretty much everywhere together, we both were likely exposed at the same time. Either I got it from her or I got it while travelling and started showing symptoms about a week or so later.

Rode in with the ambulance after sedating a very angry guy. And then got hit on an extrication with another two ejected on our way back. I wish we could just always have three on the ambulance, makes life easy. Spatulaed the patient with the scoop and left, no assistance needed, no need to steal riders.
