And as long as they keep getting appreciated and recognized for their hard work, they’ll keep doing it. That’s the key to leadership driving engagement.
Misses my #1 requirement to work that hard. Feed and water me. That's a fight I've picked many times before and don't back down from. As long as I don't get any push back for taking a few minutes to take care of basic needs when needed, I'll keep moving on along.

Always killed me when I made fast turns three times in a row for calls holding and then when I finally need the bathroom and a bottle of water the supe is immediately on my phone. If someone is habitually slow, pay attention and address it.

Don’t miss that.

Yea that was my problem with it. I was consistently right around an hour per call, sometimes less.

Ooof, 6-8 (out of 21) of our EMS units were shut down over the past weekend due to staffing shortages...

Maybe if HI didn’t have such a messed up EMT certification process, they just might have some extra help available.

Interesting. Was at the Dodgers game (4-0 over the Padres! Wooton! RIP Vin 💙)

AMR providing EMS standby, they had at least two ambulances at the stadium (walked right by them on the way in/out from the parking lot) and saw them going back and forth a couple times with their stretcher and jump bags responding to calls in the crowd.

As we were leaving after the game ended, they had a patient on a gurney just outside the gates, not too far from their ambulances, but were waiting, and as we were in the pickup leaving saw LAFD roll up with their Rescue Ambulance and Engine Company, presumably to take over patient care/transport.

I know it's LA, and LAFD runs the show (and LA Co even more so) but it still seems just a bit odd to see a sick-ish patient on a gurney, cared for by EMS, with ambulances aright there.... and they're waiting for Fire....
