Hello, I hope we can all help each other

Hi, I have been an EMT-B for about 4 years and will probably be taking enhanced classes soon. I am responsible for the supplies for our squad so may have a lot of questions along those lines. Our volunteer squad was established in 1963 and are now assisted by a county run EMS organization for medic level coverage. The give and take between these two agencies will also be an area that I will be looking for suggestions and advice.

Hey everybody!
I'm Jess, I get on here alot and read the recent posts & search things but haven't said much ;) Been an EMT-Basic since May, can't get hired easily due to being 19, lol.
I'm starting A & P for my Paramedic program January 26; actual Paramedic class starts in July it's around 18 mos. long so I'll definitely be 21 by then. Um, I have an ER tech interview Tuesday so hopefully I'll write back with good news. I think this website is a great resource!

Hi all,

I'm a new member inasmuch as I just registered but I've been lurking for awhile now. I've gotten some very valuable information from reading the boards & am very happy that I found it. I've been an EMT-B in the state of KS for 15 months and was a FR for nearly a year before that. I work in a very rural area that doesn't have a very high call volume so I'm trying to absorb as much as I can from outlets such as this. Not the same as field experience, to be sure, but what can ya do?

I'm Brian.

Been on here a while. Started in EMS in my native California as an EMT-B with AMR in the San Gabriel valley in Mar of 2000. Moved to Canada in Aug of the same year.

I'll be 42 in March and work as an EMT-A in Fairview, Alberta, Canada.

I have been looking into some plans to become a Paramedic and preventing myself from becoming homeless and broke during school.

My name is Tyler, I am 23 years old and an EMT student. I currently work for Garmin International in Kansas, and hope to become a Paramedic in the next few years. I will be applying to paramedic school this upcoming summer/fall for the 2010 school year.

Hello folks

My name is Angela and i'm a EMT-A student who works as a lifeguard with The City of Calgary. (I know, we all hate lifeguards!) I plan on working as a EMT for a year or so, and then go back an get my Paramedic. I got engaged about two months ago and plan on having the wedding a couple months before I go back.

Guess Ill post up, too.

Hi, the name here is Daniel. I also answer to KE5GDK. :) Have always been interested in helping folks, so when I lost my job back in October, I decided to go back to school and become an EMT. Ill admit, I am also somewhat of an adrenalin junkie. Also, I am an active member of the local amateur radio club, the Emergency Coordinator for my county, and the manager and a controller for the regional Skywarn radio net. So becoming and EMT seems to fit me. Lets hope that's so.

Yes, I'm afraid we do. :blush: We're getting her a friend next year. His name will be Nitro.

I recall a discussion about pet names on another forum and several mentioned using the same names. They also listed some others like defib and lido.

That's too bad. I was dearly hoping that I was somewhat original. <_<
