If you wren’t able to listen to my show this week, you can catch the archive here
With every show I get a little more comfortable, and a little better (or so I like to think)…. If I could get my timing right. For starters, remembering to not start talking too fast and secondly getting the timing in relation to total time (length) of show so I don’t find myself either rambling on desperately trying to think of something to say or trying to rush through stuff at the end because I ran out of time.
This week the topic had to do with drivers (crazy/stupid/idiotic drivers) who don’t pay attention when it comes to EV’s and (somewhat) about the effect of these drivers when it comes to responding to an emergency call….
But before that I briefly mentioned a thought in regards to having some sort of pulse-ox tester (for home use) relating it’s usefulness to the situation referred to in last weeks show (shownotes).
So back to the issue of Drivers: I shared a few anecdotes/stories that I’ve witnessed – Want to know what they were? You’ll just have to listen to the show (just wish I had gotten some more from others about their experiences). In the show I mentioned a couple short blogs (Drivers and Emergency Vehicles, I just don’t understand AND Stupid Shit #3: Pull Over for Emergency Vehicles – okay so apparently Blog Talk doesn’t like that sh** word (yes that’s what it did to it when I tried to post link in chat room). I also referenced an article shared by @ems1 via CBS Chicago: Ambulances losing precious seconds when cars dont pull over
I, also, briefly asked the question “What is your Department” doing to ensure readiness in case of a disaster (so here’s your chance to chime in – aka comments below). A few good (general info) sites out there are fema.gov, ready.gov, and the red cross
A few things on disaster preparedness that didn’t make it in the show – due to time constraints:
- Prep for, not 3 days – as previously thought, but up to a week.
- Water 1 gal/person/wk
- Think about sheltering in place (at home for example).
Do you have an “out of state” contact? Often times easier to get thru out of state than local
Be sure and join us next week on FES Tidbits as we welcome Sgt John Broyles of 1-Union-801: The Webcast . We’ll be talking about his book “The Cavalry is Coming” and about his blog/blog show (and the other *stuff* that makes up the world of “1-Union-801” (like just what exactly does all that mean and how did the name come about?).
John Broyles and 1-Union-801 is found pretty much all over the World Wide Web, but the biggies are:
