    Close enough. (whistles!!) The line forms right here, folks. Mental cases in this line. Medical in this line. All the, "I won't to go to the wilderness to survive" folks come up here in front. blkhawk can start with you first. (this is gonna take some time).

    Hey Crash, move those chairs back there. We're going to need a LOT more room for the mental line.

    I used to be on the rescue squad, served six years of service, but that was many moons ago. I was *damn* proud of my Nationally Registered Emergency Medical Technician certification I was awarded, as it was a higher standard than the Virginia EMT-A.

Now, even that is more humane, but from what I gathered, it was not uncommon for people to faint when getting the unmixed shots back in the day because it felt like someone was pushing jello under their skin. Very nasty. The old rabies shots (multiple injections over a short duration) were pretty awful too.
    I had scarlet fever as a kid and had to get a penicillin shot every day for a week or so. Yea, they are pretty darn painful. I was too sick to muster up much of a fuss though. And the rule around our house was that anytime you had to get a shot, you go ice cream. I couldn't eat ice cream at the time but my mom told me that we could get it after I got better. I don't remember ever getting extra at a later time lol.

    You know the stuff we did in the army was way above any EMT crap.Not "like a "basic" EMT". Doctor and Paramedic skills..... And what do you mean NREMT was higher than EMT-A? Did you not have to get nationally registered as an EMT-A?....

    NREMT is a more complicated class than the Va EMT requirements.....or at least it use to be. You can go anywhere as a NREMT.....not so with a state sanctioned certification.....IIRC....I had to do so many more hours of ER time for the NREMT also.

    I'm not even sure if they are making the distinction nowadays.

    I don't understand. What kind of backwards *** state is VA? They let people go around as EMTs without actually being nationally registered??

    Va is one of the Commonwealth states...they have many of their own standards of accreditation than national standards.

    Most are neck and neck.....some more...some less....but if you want to talk backwards.....California?......Really?
