Re: So, I bought a fire truck...

Now comes the question....do you stock it BLS or with just a first aid kit? Cause all Fire Apparatus has to have medical equipment.

Re: FAK question

I wouldn't call it feeding a troll. I would call it being accountable for the things you say. You have misstated facts and given false information to people on the board. Making several thousand posts does not make you an expert. Your level of training according to your signature is EMT which is th...

Re: Paramedics out there with a bag recommendation?

You really cant go wrong with Conterra, 5.11, or Ferno. If you're leaning towards a tacticool product then I would recommend LBT or Tactical Tailor. IMHO the most important thing to consider is how you want your equipment to be laid out. Once you know that, just find a bag with the internal structu...

Re: Paramedics out there with a bag recommendation?

I like the 5.11 ALS bags, I have the backpack one, but the BLS and ALS standard bags are solid too. Or even the Meret packs, those are really good bags imo.
I personally HATE StatPacks after using them

Re: Looking for a specific aid bag.

I found my aid bag. Its custom, bright red, excessively large, and far too awesome to describe prior to its arrival. Prepare yourselves, for the most ridiculous aid bag the world has ever seen. Yeah, please follow up with pics, order info, etc. Or, better yet, a thread of it loaded out for us to dr...

Re: Looking for a specific aid bag.

I have something large, but probably not as baller as an SAER pack. It's an ALICE that was heavily modified, reportedly by Tactical Tailor for a PJ. I don't know how true that is, but it's a solidly built pack. (If anybody has any additional info on this pack, I'd love some history) Note that the l...

DMAT

I'm considering joining one of the State Medical Response Team, and they're also Federal DMATs. Do any of you have any experience working with or on a Federal NDMS DMAT? If you do, I'd like to hear more about what you guys are capable of doing and capabilities of the field facilities.

Re: Wilderness First aid pack

Looks pretty good honestly. Maybe look into a WFR or WEMT course if you haven't taken one. Also, if you know how to (properly) use a BVM, maybe consider one instead of the pocket mask.

Re: Burns 101

Very good. I want to emphasize that the specialists in the Burn Centers do NOT like it when you slather a burn with vaseline, ointment, cream, or anything else: this stuff will trap heat if applied before the burn is cooled, does nothing to assist the victim, and creates a lot of painful work for t...

None I know of. HyFins, BCS, ACS, Halos all are four sided sealed. Most have a flutter valve on them. If there is one with a three sided, I'd be surprised since they all pretty much have a valve on them.
