Post with 1 note
I don’t know hardly any of my followers but I do really care about each and every one of you. I’m sure only a handful of people will ever read this post but I wanted to share something with you all today.
Today, on December 4th, 2013 my friends, best friend was killed driving to school. Everyone knows that the roads get icy and slippery, but every so often terror strikes a family. Today was one of those days. This storm has caused chaos across the US, but we’ve definitely had worse. This storm didn’t cause anxiety, or stress, or anger for people. It caused something much worse, heartbreak. So many people have been impacted by this young women’s life and she was taken too quickly. The crash was unsurvivable.
Many of us in the police, fire, and ems profession see these things every so often. But when you know the person it hits you in a whole new way. There’s no amount of preparation that can prepare you for something as sad as this. She had her whole life ahead of her and a small winter storm took all of that away. There’s no one to blame, it just happened. And it happened so fast.
So what I want to get across is, please be safe. Many of you have so much to look forward to in life and taking that extra second to slow down in the winter may not only save your life but it might save someone else’s. Please drive safe. We all know that cars are dangerous, don’t rush. Leave earlier, drive slower, and check how slippery it is so you know your stopping distance.
And those of you who respond to emergencies, please drive safe and always wear your seatbelt. It will save your life.
Getting the LUCAS at my station on Thursday and I’m not sure how I feel about it. It’ll be cool to see it in action, but I’d rather do old fashioned CPR. Proper CPR goes a long way. Let’s see if it changes my mind.
The LUCAS is great! It does an incredible job! But be careful not to become reliant on it! It doesn’t always work and in certain situations! Just because you have it doesn’t mean you will always use it. Often times you need to go back to old fashioned CPR! Know the LUCAS front and back and be confident with using it. It does a much better job then humans at CPR and that’s for sure, and it increases patient survival chances!
Good luck in the future! And it’s great to see the LUCAS in action!
