My ambulance company confuses me sometimes. We cover 2,400 square miles. Most of our coverage area is desert with heavy off road use. None of our ambulances are 4 wheel drive. The only vehicle we have that is 4 wheel drive is the supervisor truck and some personal employees trucks.

It would make sence to get at least 1 or 2 ambulances that are 4 wheel drive. Because hiking into a scene x amount of miles is getting old...

Had a really weird dream during my noon siesta. Dreamed that I was working with Johnny and Roy in the seventies era. It was really wierd, I can almost swear that everything was time period correct. And I haven't seen the shows at all.:blink:
It was weird to say the least

I had an exhaustion induced hallucination that I was taking a nap. Sweet, sweet nap.

my policy is that if the patient is more than 300 or 400 yards, ie not close to the road. I wait for fire to get them to me. I do not hike at work, in work boots, i dont get paid enough for that. let the fire medics who make 2-3x my salary carry them.

If their only a couple of miles out from the road then I will hike in with the firefighters.

My partner is considering going to the dark side-- he picked up a packet for a local large fire dept. LOL. Kidding. Sort of. ;)

Once again I have no life. Spending my night off in the office doing record audits and paperwork stuff.

My girl is coming back from vacation on Thursday and coming up for the weekend on Friday. You guys will not be hearing from me over the weekend. That is all.
