Dear checkedyhefkout I believe your tag says it all. You clearly are checked out our the system you work in. Why do we not bring bag in all the time because they are not always needed. When I'm On scene first I always bring in ALL my gear. I have has just as many times when I have had to bring in spinal for a fall or truma because you failed to do so when the call came in as such. Why do I stand in the back of the room because I listen. I assess and listen to findings and reposes that help paint a picture of what the problem is. And if there is a job to be done I get it done. Why get a blood pressure when your already getting it. Besides if I do "step on toes" by getting in the middle then I get told the city charter gives you the right to do what you want and I have to listen regardless if the the pt could suffer or not. And last paying you for procedures. I have heard on several occasions a CSFD firefighter tell a pt that FD does not cost money but AMR does. Complete lie. FD charges every person who owns a house or buys anything with in the city limits. AMR only charges people who call 911 and are treated. There are people in this city who have payed for fire service for years and never needed them. AMR has never done that. Why would we pay you for services that your already payed to do. AMR does not charge for your service they charge for the supply that we resupply you regardless if you were successfull or not or even if you used it. That means AMR saves FD money. Given you get on scene first a lot and have 3-4 people with you why then do you still have only 1 set of vitals, no IV no O2 and a modified 12 lead on a pt that has CP. Tell you what checkedthefkout why don't you just sit back and be happy with the fact that you get payed to let 365 homes burn to the ground and you still have the odasity to act like your a hero! Give me a break! At least I don't take credit for stuff I never did.
