Joshua Todd replied to Taegan's discussion EMS Personnel Carrying Weapons
"Skip Kirkwood said: Now - as far as enhancing the safety of the medics that I truly care about......   I notice that the thread starts out with "weapons" and shortly thereafter devolves quickly to guns.  GUNS ARE A LAST…"

Joshua Todd replied to Skip Kirkwood's discussion Taking Care of Our Own??
"This is not the first time that this has happend here in Texas, it is merely the first fatality that I have heard of. One manufacturer in particular (Frazier, who builds many of the units in texas including the one in question) has had the same…"

Joshua Todd replied to Patrick Nance's discussion Why is my life worth less because I am not a public servant and work for a private provider?
"Texas law makes no distinction between public and private employers. That decision was most likely made by the local DA. The Texas Penal Code Sec. 22.01. ASSAULT. (a) A person commits an offense if the person: (1) intentionally, knowingly, or…"

Joshua Todd replied to Skip Kirkwood's discussion Emergency scene rehab -are we doing what needs to be done?
"We are a third service agency and currently we provide rehab to the area fire departments. We are moving away from this as they should be capable of rehabing themselves. A box alarm in our area consists of 4 Engines, 2 Ladders, 1 Heavy rescue, 2…"

Joshua Todd replied to Bill Eyford's discussion Helmets inside ground ambulances.
"The technology now is sufficently advanced to provide you with passive and acitve noise reduction, collect and transmit outside sound to your ears, listen to stethescopes(via a bluetooth stethescope), and communicate over an intercom and radio, all…"

Joshua Todd replied to Skip Kirkwood's discussion Professionalism revisited......
"Just curious Duncan, does that change in viewpoint coincide with a move to management (due to seeing more of the negative behavior of multiple employees), other specific causes, or simply a change in your attitude over time? Do you see a difference…"

Joshua Todd replied to Neil White's discussion The right to force entry?
"We typically throw on our ballistic vests and force entry. Very rarely would we request police or fire based only on the fact that we are forcing entry. As always if needed we would request them. While we must do what we can to mitigate the risks we…"

Joshua Todd replied to Jennifer Berry's discussion Advanced Preparations at Fire Scenes
"We do similar to Wake County, 1 medic unit on first report of fire upgraded to a second unit and a district commander upon upgrade to a working fire. 1 crew bunked out is part of the RIC along with an engine company while the other stands by to…"

Joshua Todd replied to Rogue Medic's discussion Can EPs Fix the Helicopter EMS System?
"I would contend that STARFlight has a broader mission profile as they provide 24/7 critical care medicine (RN/Paramedic rather than RN/RN actually), flood and swiftwater rescue swimmers and hoist rescue, land based SAR including shorthaul/hoist and…"

Joshua Todd replied to The Cannulator's discussion iPhone Apps work and play
"I use Epocrates as mentioned earlier, also one that I use quite frequently is called "PerfectWheel". You input either Last Menstrual Period, , Due Date, or # of Weeks Gestation and it gives you Estimated Due Date, LMP, end of 1st and 2nd…"

Joshua Todd replied to Scott RB's discussion Kansas City plans to take a step backwards...
"Sense of Entitlement? I think we are all "entitled" to continued employment at our agency unless we do something to jeopardize it ourselves. I can ignore much of your rhetoric but this is just getting idiotic. Lesa has been working for an…"

Joshua Todd replied to Uri Ladell's discussion Glucose meter
"Unless I am mistaken it has nothing to do with the calibration. The blood glucose levels of venous blood differ from capillary blood for the same reason that an axillary temperature differs from a rectal one. Its not that the thermometer is…"
