Hello community,

Do to scarce availability in street medic training, I'm taking to the internet to look up medic techniques. I've been wanting to be a street medic for years, and I've gotten to the point of being tired of waiting on someone else's ok do to so. I already know the consequences of liability, but I worked in a liquor store, and the consequences of helping people is much more worth it than the consequences of alcohol sales. And, there's nothing to internet can't teach me; it's a matter of being prepared! Yes, I'm overzealous, and I might even be naive, but I'm determined to help, and I strongly believe this is my place in the revolution! ::nurse::

Anyone have any similar experiences or advice?

life is just what happens between meals at dennys
studying technique, anatomy and conditions is super important but hands on learning and experience is an absolute must. so is humility as a medical responder. find people to be dummys for you, find other folks to study and oractice with and run scenarios with. seek out trainings and all opportunities to practice. an overconfident, underprepared responder can be worse than none at all. always carry narcan and a med kit and offer care to folks around you.

Run around yelling ” WOOOOOOO WOOOOOOO” like
an ambulance.

Practice making a triangular arm sling on strangers using your skank.

Practice improvising a tourniquet using nothing but bits and pieces from your rig. Do this in the Downtown Business District if at all possible. Choose well dressed “victims”.

There, you’re Certified.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $120.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

Barreling through the Arizona desert on an intermodal freight train, eating peanut butter with a fork. The only thing that could improve this situation would be chunky peanut butter. Other than that I have no complaints and life's pretty good.
