A week in the street.

After a long week, we received some great news on Friday. 

Starting tomorrow, we paramedics are being sent to the street to ride on an engine company with a FF/PM for a total of forty hours. We'll be on varying schedules; for instance, I'm working one 16-hour shift and one 24-hour shift. Ideally, we'd be able to get some evaluations completed, but I suspect it's more of an introduction to our role as providers.

We'll be spread out all over the city, and so I'm sure everyone will regroup next week with some good stories about our short stint of being in the companies. Although we're still waiting for permanent assignments, we're definitely making progress in the right direction.

Interesting that BOA is from my home town of Steamboat Springs, and they didn't approach our Fire Department to do a field test or even let us know that they were working on a duty boot. Small towns are funny sometimes. Captain Scott Hetrick Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue

St. Baldrick’ Support a Fellow Brother Fighting Pediatric Cancer!
As I read all the above I wondered "How does it work?" Are fire personnel asking for pledges from the public to be paid to this charity when the personnel have their heads shaved? The ad above was not clear to me. I will read it again. The charity is certainly a very worthwhile cause.…
