Kourtney. I'm 24, EMT-I and Paramedic student. The trifecta, commercial, volly, and ER EMS.

learning a lot from my paramedic book!

The best one I’ve seen is taking the glove, stretching it over your head and using a straw to inflate it. And then proceeding to cluck like a chicken. My chief used to do that when he’d visit schools and churches with an ambulance for an educational visit.

How about no, it’s a choking hazard. The first thing all little kids ever do when I see emts hand them these is shove them in their mouth.

1. It is not the policy of this ambulance service to “clear the room” when responding to a frequent flyer shortness of breath patient. So give the flashbang grenades back to the SWAT team and get on with your job.

2. The rule against forming a union at this service also…

Let’s be honest here -
I am not the girl men fall in love with.
I am the girl that men want to fuck.
I am a conquest. A prize. A show.

I could count on five hundred fingers
the number of people that have professed,
“I like you. You’re different. You’re an interesting girl.”
Apparently I’m not fascinating enough for you
to want to hold for more than a one night stand.

Once
as I finished swimming a sea of blankets
and got left stranded on the shore,
I asked myself:

What’s wrong with me?
What am I doing?
Am I not good enough for anybody?

And right before I could drown again,
the sun woke up and said,

"You are.
You are enough.
Forget the men whose hands have groped your hips
in search for answers to questions
you’ve never even heard of.
Do not settle for people who do not appreciate you,
who do not know how lucky they are.
Remember it is a privilege to be loved by you,
or even just
to be touched by you, and
the warmth of another body does not define your worth.

These men -
they think that they can own you
with their drunken stares and roughened arms, but
I have circled the earth
a thousand times
to feed the light flowing inside your skin.
Do not waste it by illuminating those who
can not even be bothered
to learn your last name.”

So that night when
the moon tried once more to pin me down,
I told him:

I am made of sunlight, crashing waves, and fireworks.
You think you can tame me
and cool my flesh?
I am the girl who plays with matches,
and trust me I play it well.
Lord knows I’ve walked through villages leaving
a pile of destruction in my wake.

My heart is a bushfire
and the next time you try to control me,
darling, make no mistake -

I will burst out and ravage you in flames.

I’ll
burn
you
to
the
ground.

(This isn’t a test.)

Rest in peace to a partner, a friend, and a wonderful guy who was taken too soon. Your Hartford and Newington EMS family will miss you dearly. 

Keep your head held high up there Donavan.

If this was a fire or police member it would have 1,000,000 reblogs by now. We lost one of our own. I’m fucking ashamed of the lack of support from fellow EMS. And if people unfollow me I don’t care, go fuck yourselves he was a friend and a great partner and always had people’s backs. And that alone deserves a hundred thousand billion trillion fucking reblogs for respect.
