“You sir have another feather in your cap. Your bedside manner has made me feel so comfortable and trusting of you.”
– My patient yesterday when she was talking to her doctor.
This fall I started my second semester to earn my Associates of Science in Fire Technology. Along the way I am learning more than just what I thought I was. I’m learning about different certification programs, credentials I can earn, EMS/First Responder life and so much more! I can’t wait to learn as much as I can and share it along the way! (:
“Train like you fight. Fight like you train. No man gets left behind.”
I hear this all the time in my military career and in EMS. It is very true. Dont take training lightly.
Today has been a long day…well my day is still going. It has been one of the more physically challenging days at work I’ve had in a long time. Getting back into the gym to work on my strength and body mechanics sure has helped me since I pulled my back. Wearing my back brace helps a whole lot too. EMS is one of the most backbreaking lines of work out there, its ranked in the top 5 and I can see why. If you don’t take care of your body, your body won’t be able to take care of you. I just wanted to maybe vent a little, remind everyone to take care of themselves. ♡
