I've recently (last week) completed my MFR/EMR class and waiting for NREMT so I'm "Officially" going from supportive spouse to active member in EMS. I'm so excited!
I joined the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) last November. In our rural area they have certified me to perform Traffic Control, change out FF airpacks and refill them (and monitor them so that FF like my dear hubby only get to go inside for 3 airpacks and then have to sit out and rehydrate and be evealuated by a medic when they don't appear well or have exceeded their air pack limit. My sweet Steve will not being going back for his 4th and 5th air packs anymore) , perform Advanced Field Operations and Urban Search and Rescue, and Wild Land search and Rescue, set up LZ's, refil oxygen tanks, Pipeline Emergencies response and damage Prevention.
I've missed our cribbing class, but will be caught up to speed ASAP. Not sure what our next class is on the 6th, but May 13 we're being trained as Weather Spotters.
Sorry I just can hardly stand the wait or contain my excitement and wanted to share part of why I've not been here lately.
Hope you have a TERRIFIC Easter holiday . As Always...Be sAfe and stay in touch.
