Blog Password!

In the interest of goodwill, I have decided to compromise with "administration" and rather than deleting the blog, I have set a password, ostensibly to keep the media hounds off the backs of whoever. (Because there's SO MUCH information on the blog that could be a threat to national security!) Anyway, the password is "blog". Just type it in at the prompt and it will take you to the blog. Feel free to share this information with whoever you think will be interested. Except of course the CIA, FBI, KGB, Interpol, the Times Picayune and all those other high-level, top secret agencies just itching to find out when HD's next barbecue is or whatever. Good luck! Y'all be safe out there!

-well finally able to post after months of frustration. thank you "brain," and welcome back from your shakedown of NYC! I would like to voice that overall this division is doing better than i have ever seen it since my time here. just having the few extra units, and sprints up makes a world of difference in call volume/unit and allows us to actually eat on occasion.

PHILIPS -- possibly your next monitor. the dpartment's product evaluation committee has looked long and hard at the facts, your evaluations, cost, training, reliability, service, and partnership between the 2 final competitors, philips MRX and MEDTRONICS LP-12. ZOLL was ruled out early and the last two made for a harder decision. we should be seeing new monitors real soon, 12 lead classes, ETCO2 training, and a lot of other educational benefits.
however, i am glad the early morning meetings are over for a bit.

-finally, is it me, or does your paycheck seem smaller lately? not having that OT has been putting a strain on! let's hope something goes through with the RFP for EMS details real soon. not having that OT available anymore is tough for the paramedics. i know of basics taking home more than me because of their OT availability.

-hope you enjoy my thoughts and feel free to leave any gentle and kind comments, or as nasty as you wanna be stuff! se you on the street, friends!

One of the family Needs Our Help

As we all know Jay Metzger Had a heart attack earlier in the week. He has had some complications since and as of Friday remains in Tulane Hospital. He need help due to a recent illness he has no more sick or annual leave. This will add a burden to him and his family during an already stressful time. If anyone can help by donating either sick or annual time to him, I know that he would appreciated this very much. Your thoughts and prayers are very much so appreciated as well. Thank you very much for your time and thoughts.
