How Many EMS Personnel Are Here

Just curious how many EMTs, Paramedics etc... there are out there in RVs.

Do you travel with any gear (beyond first aid kit)?

If you were to happen upon MVA with injuries, prior to the arrival of local EMS, would you assist (assuming safe to do so), or would call 911 and drive on?

Both us Al. I was a P/T EMT with a local hospital ambulance service for several years. Most all LEOs in my area had p/t jobs at that time. Was also a volunteer firefighter for our local FD. Age caught up with me before I retired and I could not keep up with the young hose draggers anymore. I still try to do what I can at a scene with trauma etc, but cardiac complaints scare me.

Well, if by First Responder you mean people who are trained as to what to do BEFORE 9-1-1 is called (HINT: first thing is make that call) I qualify.

I am a retired Emergency Dispatcher, Specifically POLICE. Got the same First aid training the troopers got plus a bit of extra in one area (Long story there) but when you make that 9-1-1 call on a cell phone in S.E. Michigan it's likely one of my former co-workers (or their replacements) who answer it.

Know the feeling, but they keep trying to drag me back into it, but as you said I still do what I can!

Got out because I was burned out and tired plus the firehouse politics didn't help either!

Everytime I hear a house siren or house alert go I do get the itch!

Recieved EMT rating in 1975 and EMT Instructors cirtificate in 1976. Let the ratings expire after several years working full time. Currently a volunteer as 1st Responder with local FD.

This a timely question for me since I just returned home from a call, anaphylaxis, the patient is still alive and hopefully will remain in that state for several more years.

My citizens supported me for 31 years. They paid for my training (fire and EMS) and clothed me, fed me and gave me shelter for those years and now into my retirement. It's my privledge to continue to serve them any way I can. While I'd rather never see another broken body, burning home or other disaster again, I won't ever shy away from helping.

Former Volunteer EMT/Firefighter for 3 years. Moved out of area to have room for adopted sons. Then got hurt on differant job unable to crawl into wrecks but do carry fully trauma kit to use if able or at least direct able body to do it. Since disabled do monitor all the local radio traffic and do miss the RUSH of helping.
