Arne Larsen commented on Judi Light Hopson's blog post Confronting Someone About Lack of Medical Skills
"Wow...did this open a can of worms, but a very good topic. Been there done that. A friend of mine was recently fired from their job after 16 years as a medic. Did they deserve it, I strongly feel yes. The person in question are they trainable? Well…"

Started as a volunteer in 1987, then completed school part time over a 2 year period (1990-91). Passed my Provincial exams 1992, first employment was with Nobleton Ambulance Service and Royal Victoria Hospital. 1992-1996

Have worked full time since 1996, and still love every part of this job. I don't think I will ever leave the front lines unless my body can't handle it any longer, Praise God, I still can!
My Training:
Here in Ontario we have to pass the basic Provincial A-EMCA (Advanced Emergency Medical Care Attendant).

I am currently what is known as a Primary Care Paramedic (PCP). We can administer 5 basic drugs (Nitro, ASA, Epi, Glucagon and Ventolin). We can acquire 12 lead, we are doing both STEMI and Stroke Bypass within our area. We currently can place LMA's as advanced airway. Our service is slowly moving towards IV's. We just switched over to a new Base Hospital, so until we have our first CME with them, things are status quo from our previous Base Hospital.
About Me
I had a passion for EMS since I was 12 years old. Total inspired by "EMERGENCY". Thanks Johnny and Roy! LOL. I have a passion for sharing my knowledge of EMS. I have been teaching BLS for over 20 years, having taught in several community colleges. I'm a First Aid, CPR, and AED instructor, working with a doctor who is medical director for HeartZap Services. I was recently teaching in a private college as a Primary Care Paramedic skills instructor. I'm currently tutoring a student on the job. I also tutor new graduates who are getting ready to write their Provincial exams, and want to spend more time on scenerios and equipment review.
Day Job
Primary Care Paramedic, and some times licenced plumber.
I Love Being in EMS Because
Passion to serve people within my community
Relationship Status
Married

Hi Arne, and thanks for your comments. My training was the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care's accelerated EMT course, a challenging program. I'm about to choose a paramedic program here in Arizona. UCLA offers a 6-month paramedic program and I would love to enroll but I just can't be gone from Scottsdale that long.

We are a rapidly growing community. I lived in this community all my life and the population has tripled over the last 5 -8 years! We have managed to keep our volunteer squad but we do have a paid service that we run with. We are primarily responsible for 2nd calls in the area and all rescue type calls.
Thank you much! I'm sure one day my daughter will be out on the the calls with me! She is very much into the emergency services field! Her father is a Paramedic/Fire Fighter also! So, its in her blood!
