My Training:
Have been working with EMS people for over twenty years.

Owner of Staffing Agency in Murray Utah . Staffing RN,CNA.s and Paramedics to hospitals
About Me:
Was married to captain for Unified Fire for many years. Like the freedom of being a firefighers wife they leave home alot and I am very independent. Didn't like the cheating he did though
Day Job:
Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Why I Love Fire/EMS
Love my job. I love doing what I do
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Short staffing issues and budgets. I think there is a great mis understanding in the medical community of Paramedic skill levels and how they can be more utilized during this time of the nursing shortages going on in our country.It surprises me daily how many people do not know the difference between an EMT and a Paramedic. They are also not aware of the skill level that Paramedics have and they are extremely under utilized.

Loss of life is never a thing that we ever want to focus on.Today I think we should. We have lost some wonderful people that were doing a very difficult job. Why ? we don't know all the details yet.

I tried to over look all the extra stuff he was getting on the side. That worked until I figured out what he was doing.

He was feeling very guilty about the extra candy he was getting and then decided not to take responsability for wrecking the marriage so he was going to make it look like it was all my fault. The head games were almost more than I could ever take.He would go into another room at the firehouse or at the ER where he worked and call me ,talk for a minute or two then he would… Continue

I am not to familiar with personnel in Wash. Terrace. They have a lot of people going through there as they have a FF Academy there and hire new people. I am originally from Grand Junction, Colorado. My wife is from the same area and my kids were born in Spain.

Good luck in all that you do in SLC...
