4..  Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

5..  You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.


Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack
without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7..  However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.  A deep breath should be taken

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…



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..

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!!


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!!
