Minions, It Is Time To Mobilize!

Okay guys, here’s the deal. I’m trying to help an EMS advocacy group get off the ground. They aim to raise awareness and provide education and peer support strategies for EMS people who suffer from mental illness, particularly depression and PTSD. They, like myself, are tired of constantly reading of our EMS brethren taking their […]

… they held their lighters aloft and swayed rhythmically. Men bought me beer, and women threw their panties on the stage. You know, the usual.* Just got back from the ESCAPe Conference in Pipestem, WV and the Ohio ITLS Emergency Care Conference in Columbus, OH. Had a great reception at both. This is the third […]

Leavin’ On a Jet Plane…

In Defense of The Borg

May 19 will be my sixth anniversary as a Borg drone here at Southwest Hive. I’m still not fully assimilated. Likely never will be. I jokingly call my employer The Borg because of their tendency to gobble up smaller ambulance services on the fringes of their territory, relentlessly expanding their empire, like, well, The Borg.

Just ran a call for a car overturned in a ditch. And by “ditch,” I mean “gully.” Or maybe “ravine” would be better. If we were further west, we’d call it an “arroyo.” You know, smaller than a canyon, but deeper than a trench. Deep enough that extricating someone from it would require specialized equipment […]

Veteran’s Day

Thank you to all of those selfless men and women who have served in our country’s armed forces. Your service and your sacrifice are much of what makes this country great. Not just militarily, but in fulfilling the promise of the experiment in liberty that is the United States of America. It’s a nebulous thing, […]

Dear Borg IT Drones,

I’m sure, never having worked on an ambulance, that you’re mightily impressed with our recent CAD software upgrade. And truly, the graphics and buttons are kinda sexy. But while it probably makes sense to you to set it up to have the computer automatically plot a route to every friggin’ destination, to us, the end […]

Life Imitates Art

For you Half Life 2 fans, meet Jennifer, aka Alyx Vance. I know exactly how she feels. Without buying a single item, I could rummage through my gun safe and closets and find enough stuff to dress as Alice from the Resident Evil films. Hey, don’t judge me. I was going through a Milla Jovovich […]
