    We had a typical nine call day. But there was that one wreck on I-95, where the pickup truck and trailer crashed in the construction zone and landed upside down on a porta-potty WITH A GUY INSIDE! We took him to the trauma center but he is alive.....Sorry, no pics

    Structure fire and bad/rough day should never be said in the same sentence unless a crew member is injured :supergrin:

    I've gone entire months without a single call worth mentioning, this in a city of 150K. Enjoy it when you can get it. My typical day is 10-15 ems calls, probably of those, 1 ALS level call. And as we all know, it comes in groups. Run one code and you'll run 4 more on the same go around ect.

    I worked two shifts on Christmas day....vollie in the 'burbs, but...

    4 hour AM shift: 1 potential mental health arrest (released with LEO approval); 1 CHF in a 97 year old (hospital); 1 rectal bleed -- mutual aid from another corps (hospital).

    5 hour evening shift: 1 abdominal pain/SOB (hospital); call to fire in district on way back, but diverted to MVA (hospital)

    Oh, and we're now doing electronic paperwork and my last two reports didn't "upload" so had to be restarted from scratch.

    Long day, but I'd do it again in a minute!

    As i always say, it comes in waves. I can go weeks without a certain type of response, then i run 1-2 a day for a full go around, weird how that seems to work.

    I'm waiting for the wave of Sweedish bikini team MCIs. [fingers crossed]:supergrin: But I know what you mean. I can't wait for my current wave to be over- last shift was 2 granny runs and a meth related/ induced fist fight, a meth head who couldn't go to sleep (suprise suprise!), a meth head who shot up and then went status epilepticus, a drunk meth head MVA with a pneumo + cardiac tamponade (my first experience with Becks triad. Sort of cool, I don't listen to heart sounds alot- but it was obvious with this guy.), another meth head who wanted pain control after getting arrested the day before and apparently loosing the fight with the cops, and the last meth head of the day who tried to commit suicide by taking a bunch of vicodin. Boy, that was fun about 5 min after the narcan went in! I think someone in my neck of the woods must have cooked up a real "good" batch for Christmas.

    Had a stinking drunk lady at 9:30 AM. She hated the medic, so guess who volunteered to jump off the engine onto the ambulance lol.
