You know how sick it is? If God forbid, a family member broke their limb today and 911 was not available, I would be searching the Internet, provided it's there to see what I can do. We don't even know the basics of care.
Would be nice if we had a sticky for emergencies, such as broken limbs, high fever, etc. etc. I know, it is illegal to offer medical advice, "whatever", but maybe in a "opinion" type of format. What do you think?
I highly recommend a CPR class for everyone; they are offered by local hospitals or community centers, sometimes even schools or libraries. If we can be of any help, just PM us! We love to share our opinions, lol.
Shelleydar, you sure do count!
Murron, wow, NYC!!! Did you guys meet on the job? I bet you can get pretty busy in Boston!!!
Jan, how far from the station is he? Bet he sees a lot of service.
Hubby and I both work in Baltimore City. We have a few tales to tell, lol.
We have a neighbor who was an EMT in Lost Angeles. His stories sure are eye-poppers.
My DH trained as an EMT and did ride-alongs before I met him. Good guy to have around in an emergency! My sister-in-law has it really good - my brother is an ER doctor AND trained as an osteopath, so he can give her chiropractic adjustments. Lucky duck!
paid medic in a small city, started out at 16 on volunteer ems squad it does help you keep your head on during emergencies by doing it for a living. They need to teach classes however on how to live a 24 hour on/48hour off schedule.
