hey Darren, hope all is well! We go from nice cool rainy days to blistering hot. The health Dept seems to be a bit worried about the Swine flu this fall, did you guys see any of that this Spring?

Thankyou Darren! Our ambulances are all LED now, I do agree with you on the whole "combination" theory. We have also recently been wearing lime green and / or bright orange (for we Supervisors so the snipers can pick us off, lol) coats and vests with a great deal of reflective striping. I can't even walk into the rooms in the hospitals with the automatic water faucets in the sinks without them all turning on. These efforts to make us more visible are to prevent accidents when on the scene beside a busy highway. If it saves one person's life it will have done its job.

Lol....he's right! I was just cruising around Youtube and found some really good footage of the Ambulances in Ireland and the UK. We are just now getting around to placing the reflective stripes on the rear doors. I was just wondering if there are any studies out there that show if your colors make a difference in safety. Our rigs seem to have a great deal more LED a Christmas tree....some of our research shows these can sometimes be a distraction, draws people right into you on a scene and has a mezmerizing effect. Just curious!

Thanks for the comment in the thread--It has been very interesting. Of course these doctors are not emergency medicine but I had no idea the totality of just not really having an identity with these physicians--very strange to say the least! They really has no idea about our ACLS--none..Education with out attitude and doing well in this atmosphere may go a long way for me and other medics they could possibly hire!

Well, it was $6.00 to have a pair of jeans washed and I tried to do it myself, only to find that the air was so wet it would have grown mold before it ever did dry!...spent the 6 bucks...I'll check out that website, thanks!
