    I use this one, from target: it's not horrible. I like that there are a few different compartments to help protect the crushables (grapes, sandwiches) from the heavy things (yogurts, carrots) that would smoosh them. Can get a "stink" if left uncleaned after I get home from a 36hr shift...

    Resume question

    ^^ I think is more for background checks and applications than RESUMES... It's kinda assumed that on a resume you really want to highlight pertinent positions and showcase your best and most relevant experience. I'm a CPRW (resume writer) who specializes in helping my EMS students with...

    AHA CPR instructor??

    Excellent- thanks so much for the info. Yeah I'm not sure if my organization qualifies. I think we do? We used to offer the AHA Instructor class but don't haven't had one in a few years (mainly because we already have two or three instructors who are certified). I replied to your PM-...

    One Person Stretcher Lower (without patient)

    OP- it's kinda one of those "once you see it in person" type things... couldn't you ask your partner or a coworker? FWIW, it's generally on one side under the mattress (not both sides- you might not be able to find it if you're looking on the wrong side!) and you can help counterbalance the...

    Best Audio Study Material

    There are some decent Anatomy and Physiology lectures on recordings, but I don't know if that's too broad for you? Looking for paramedic-specific? Are you riding with someone? Could always give your co-pilot a study sheet and have them quiz you.

    What is the differene between an expert and a know-it-all?

    Sure, why not? Take Napolean Bonaparte- he was arguably one of the most expert military leaders of all time. He created this unparalleled army which trounced through Europe, yet had too much hubris to listen to his advisers when his forces were wanning (know it all!) and was ultimately...
