Garmin, Brooks, and Oakley all have me pretty committed.
I love the Garmin watches and if I could make and receive texts and phone calls on them I would definitely have one. Until then, I need to stick with my Apple Watch. It's so nice to not need to have my phone with me but still know that my family or work could still get ahold of me if needed.

Plot twist, I am a firefighter!

But the difference of the FF/PMs who know what the back of an ambulance looks like and those who don’t….remains staggering.
You're tiggering me. #tiggered

I can receive all that stuff, I just can't respond to them with the watch. But all my texts, or calls when I'm at work, etc all show up. Doesn't quite sound like what you're wanting though.

I do admittedly feel ridiculous asking this, but I'm also curious. All are relevant certs and I feel like they should be listed, but I feel like it looks pretty goofy. Less is more? Wear 'em proud? Use a dash to separate medic certs from RN? Or have I had one too many Bangs and overthinking this entirely?

Nothing wrong if that’s what flies. You EARNED them.

On Tuesday one of my patients promoted both me and my partner to paramedic, so we'll be hollering at the State Health Department for our new licenses 😂 lol if only it was that easy

Seriously thinking about upgrading my old tablet (it's like an almost 10 year old Amazon Fire HDX 8.9").

Sacrilegious I know, but the Apple iPad Mini 6 looks like the most attractive option (at the very least it has the same USB-C charger as my phone so no need to buy a bunch of new cables lol).

I just don't wanna spend "new tablet" money (especially "new Apple tablet" money) lols

Yesterday was probably the second most fun I've had in the short month that I've been on the truck. Me and my partner accepted a challenge from the other day crew working for a competition to see who could get the most calls. While it ended in a tie, our chief was loving it because we were working hard to knock out our calls. The only days that have been better were when I was partnered with one of the guys on the other crew, we had the vibe and coordination necessary for partners to have

If you do the impossible once, your boss will expect it to be the new norm.

Whew, now that was a busy last shift before starting vacation...
Activated Fire Alarm at the apartments where we had a working fire last shift
Another 2 alarm house fire (we pulled up first in engine, 2nd company on scene behind the 1st in Quint)
CPR case that required forced entry (pt had a DNR though, which they pulled out after we popped the door)
And finished off with a rollover (no pinned or extrication needed thankfully)

Left almost straight to the airport from work, thankfully I have PreCheck, security was faster than checking in a bag! Lol

Anyways, So Cal here I come!
