    introductions and Member Info

    Just a thought... I saw the thread where people are basically doing some introductions and a brief professional bio; maybe it would help to make a tacked thread for folks to reference?

    I was copying individual posts to this post, but it was getting so long it really saves no time - please take a second to read through the who's who; a lot of real world knowledge in one place!

    HazMat Paramedic in a large progressive urban third service ems agency, assigned to care for the bomb squad at EOD incidents. I am on a regional CBRNE Strike Team and have most of the rescue certs out there. Commissioned FireFighter, USAR Technical Search Specialist, HazMat Technician, Swiftwater, Confined Space, High Angle, Trench, Wide Area Search, Etc. If you can think of a government sponsored CBRNE class, I have probably had to go (ACBIRC at Dugway Proving Ground, LSU Sampling, COBRA Live Agent at FtMcClellan, NERTC in Maryland (National Fire Academy), Rad/Nuc in Nevada, IRTB and PRSBI at EMRTC in New Mexico, basically everything. Plus studying for my FP-C exam. Currently in pursuit of both my TCLEOSE Peace Officer license with the county sheriffs dept as well as a BAAS in Emergency Management Administration through West Texas A&M.

    I have been in the Fire Service since 1997 and an NREMT-I since 2000. As for certifications, well they number in the triple digits but the only ones that really mean anything to me are, NREMT-I, NPQ FF II, Haz-Mat Technician, Rapid Intervention Techniques, FF Survival, BTLS & ITLS, PALS, ACLS (they would not give me the card because I am an intermediate), Crash Victim Extrication (x7, yeah I like this course), and if I can get off my tail and finish two more classes I will have my Associates Degree in Fire Science.
    I work one full time fire dept. in a county that serves around 100,000 citizens and has a daytime population of around 130,000 due to several industries. I worked part time with the EMS service here for about three and a half years before taking an additional full time job (FF/EMT-I) in the county I live in. In 1988 we held the "distinction" of being the "Murder Capital of the World" with the highest murder rate per capita. Well we dont hold that title anymore but the murders keep coming. We have had three seperate shootings in the last two weeks alone and the neighbor to my fire station (house within 50') was found brutually murdered in her home last year. Hell, the first shooting I went to was a double with one DOA and I had only been there 7 shifts. I guess what I am getting at is working here is a trial by fire.

    Obtained EMT Basic in 1990 and EMT-P in 1992. Active full-time from 1990 to 1995, but loss of hearing due to an firearm-related incident on the job pushed me out of the trucks. I still keep my CE up to date, but only for my personal satisfaction.
