Wait a minute!

A few decades ago firefighters were asked to include EMS to their skill set. It took some time but it’s now pretty much expected that firefighters be medically trained.

It’s kind of funny how if a firefighter complains about doing EMS he is considered lazy or behind the times. If a paramedic or EMT balks at firefighting though it’s accepted.

Now we have Community Paramedic in  being crammed down our throats under the name of Mobile Intensive Health care and the medics who speak against it are the bad guys.

Just when I thought I had things figured out I realize that I don’t know nothing.

The what if we’re wrong-a-thon – Narcan edition
this is a subject that provokes an ethical debate. i am a long time medic and believe narcan should be available to everyone. we didnt make these people junkies, but I suppose everyone has a right to save themselves or their loved ones. your logic about not doing drugs is sound, BUT! do we still…

Calling from the parking lot or across the street, or even the waiting room because they haven't been "seen".

That's awesome and so darn true! I got a good chuckle out of the fact that we are truly the only ones that can relate to these type of calls. I read your book it was great! Take care! Jay
