    That moment when you clear a public assist (lift assist) call, and as we're pulling out of the cul-de-sac like 5 Police cars come up trying to pull in... (they said they caught a dropped 911 call)

    McCormick Testing/Interview

    Its been 3+ years since I left McCormick, and like 5-6 years give or take since I got hired there and went thru the process at the time. Shortly before I left, they were bought out by AMR, tho they (obviously) kept McCormick relatively intact. Plus they took over the Santa Monica transport...

    Hmm, seemingly overnight, our EMS Agency used CARES Act monies to buy like 50 Lucas 3 devices and put 2 each on all ambulances. Apparently they don't actually have any written guidelines or SOGs or anything for them yet but have already been used. We just got a familiarization course, though FD...

    Well my sister just bought a (2 yr old used) BMW X5.... An order of magnitude or 2 lower I made my own big purchase, after having spent the last year or so with no computer at home other than my cell phone (since my old laptop hard drive failed) I finally bought a new computer. (Now I gotta...

    We did a 343 Tribute workout today. The tallest building in our district is 43 stories so we put on full turnouts, including SCBA and our high rise hose bundle complement, went on air and climbed it, came back to station to do 100 push ups, 100 situps, and 100 weighted squats. Then we really...

    So I've been thinking about breaking down and buying a Leatherman Raptor. However while pursuing multi-tools I saw this version from SOG. Looks like a few more tools at a slightly lower price point (and I like SOG in general) Anybody ever heard/seen these...

    That moment when the rookie in station, the gung ho headstrong cocky, talk a lot of smack type, challenges you to a mask up drill, gloves on (i.e. properly donning SCBA Mask, hood, helmet, going on air, etc, all with the big bulky not very dexterous firefighting gloves on)... and not only do I...

    Not so much from our station itself (unless ypu climb up to the roof of the old hose tower) but in our neighborhood looks directly into Pearl Harbor (can see both Battleships Missouri and Arizona Memorial) For the end of WW2 celebrations (much muted due to the pandemic unfortunately) they had...

    If I had an extra 90 grand laying around I'd be talking to a dealer about buying a Ram TRX. Not that I need an off road desert racing tuned pickup that probably gets single digit mpg (because it has a freaking 700 horsepower supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 with 650lb ft of torque, 0-60 in 4.5...
