    I sincerely doubut Ambulance Girl will do for Volunteer EMS, what Emergency! did for EMS as a profession. It was directed at the wrong generation.

    I watched it, but I wasn't overly amused.



    *Stats: Emergency! is thought to have brought thousands of people into EMS from the 1970's well into the 1980's.


    As for her POV, I've never seen a POV with a SOL on the hood.. And I've seen some big whackers. I, myself am a whacker.. I've responded to the ambulance garage, in an ambulance... That is, I was driving my restored cadillac around when a call came in. "Only a true whacker owns an ambulance".

    But then again, I don't have a big blue light or have my POV decked out in Stars of Life.

    There's a book called"Fighting Fire"by Caroline Paul(her sister Alexandra was on "Baywatch"if that interests you)and she tells about being a San Francisco woman firefighter,vegetarian and more socially concious than her peers if she says so herself.
    Good read,even if I don't agree with her politics.It takes all kinds to fill a firehouse,you know.

    Yer own Caddy, huh? Only thing I wonder is if yer old enought to have worked it... All kidding aside, happy to see another person that cares about the old rigs. Those Caddy's, Olds', and Buicks saved alot of lives.

    Whacker? Not in my book... Would ya settle for "antique prevervationist and historian"?

    Talking

    One of the guys on my shift was talking about about a tv show he and his wife were watching....

    It sounded a lot like what wifey was watching downstairs on what I call the "Lying, cheating, murder and mayhem newtork".. aka Lifetime....
    so I asked him what channel it was on....

    "Lifetime"...

    To which one of my firefighters, and female stated "you watch that crap"?

    He hasn't lived it down since!
