Thanks for the thoughts and prayers, Jackie. This one was a little too close. Won't be able to go back to work until I see the cardiologist on Jan. 30. Hubby is already talking about me retiring. But do people like us ever retire?
Great to hear from you. The main differences are that all of our Ambulance Services are run totally separate to the Fire & Rescue Service. Saying that, we do work very closely with one another. I try to make sure that the training I deliver is along the same protocols to which the local Ambulance Service use, so that when we all meet up at an RTC (MVC) then we are all hopefully singing from the same sheet! Please let us know if there is anything specific that you're interested in finding out?

Actually...I work for a very small town in west Texas, population around 3,500. Nearest level 1 trauma hospital is 86 miles away in either direction. Nearest level 1 of any hospital same distance. So our transfers take from 4 hours up to 12 hours.
