    Default Probie EMT

    Just a quick note to introduce myself and say hi.
    I'm a brand new EMT-B, only 2 rides outside of orientation. Looks like I've finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. LOL. Learning a lot and intend on working my way to Paramedic both in the civilian and military sectors (MSANG). ~Bobbi
    Where are we going, and why am I in this hand-basket?

    Trust me... I'm so green I produce chlorophyll. I'm well aware I've a lot to learn. Kinda feel like a sponge waiting to soak it all in. Thanks for the advice and the welcome.

    If you don't mind my asking, where in LA? I work on the MS Gulf Coast.

    I've had some pretty strange calls already (including an odd DOA) most of them in one day. Seen alot over the last six years or so as a volunteer FF/First Response Team. The patient care part is relatively easy. The hard part is learing the rules and regs of the company w/o much guidance. Feels like I'm constantly learning from my mistakes... good thing I'm a fast learner LOL. I'll PM you with some details. Thanks for the opportunity to vent.

    Not a problem... Feel free anytime...

    Learning from mistakes is the best education. Yes it is hard to learn the policies and procedures of a new company, especially if no ones wants to help you...

    later,

    Bob
