Is Thursday already…Temp is 17 above and NOAA says the high for the day will be ‘near’ 15…close enough for Government work!!
Another day in office, tomorrow CPR class off site and Saturday 1st Responder Refresher, out west of metro.

Then next week the grind really starts up. But so far looks like I will have one small EMR Initial class. No complaints as I usually get the biggest and most racially diverse, which makes it interesting..

Doing an EMT class for a college I am an adjunct instructor for that starts this month….Lots of road time and classroom time!! Pay is decent though…

Enjoy…

 

Facebook Monday….

Back at it..

Classroom full of Law Enforcement this AM..

Not always the most receptive of audiences, especially CPR and 1st Responder refresher stuff.

Be glad when this year is done as it has been CPR year and we have recerted thousands of LEOs, FFs and others…

Well my classes are done until January, am just assisting with others until then.

50 degrees out there this morning a bit unseasonable for us..But better then snow and cold we usually have..

Enjoy…

New CPR guidelines stress compressions before mouth-to-mouth

New CPR guidelines stress compressions before mouth-to-mouth.

Not quite what we were expecting.

Many of us that teach BLS/CPR expected a higher ratio of compressions, in fact some expected all compressions.

In our system 1st Responders are taught to do 2 minutes of Compressions with no rescue breathing or just placing a partial non-rebreather mask on patient at 15 lpm.

This is not a big change.

Hmmmm….

Week so far…..

Tuesday headed up to Forest Lake to help with a 1st Responder/CPR class at Forest Lake Fire.

All passed.

Test time

Also saw this

Was used in this rescue down by Owatonna during the recent floods.

The was by a good friends home place where they ended up rescuing some dude who was being stupid.

Notice the little yellow boat in the middle of the Substation?

Boat was totalled.

From Forest Lake we headed to Camp Ripley for our Wednesday sessions with the State Patrol. Only 3 more trips up there!!

This…

Omly picture I took. Some big old plane that looked a helluvalot bigger standing there as it flew over.  Two of them were flying around the airfield.

From there we headed to Dayton, for a 1st Responder/CPR session with Dayton Fire. again all passed!

Okay, so it was not all work!!

So home this morning. the crud my kidz shared is kicking my ass and I have a class tonight to teach……..

Well better then having nothing to do!!
