The center of human nature is rooted in ten thousand ordinary acts of
kindness that define our days.

You know you work in #EMS when it’s 22:30. & you’re on your 3rd attempt at cooking (this same) dinner 😲. At least My partner @caitlinmarycampbell is keeping Me somewhat sane… for now… #Worklife #Stationlife ##Ambulance #FuckYoDinna

It’s like I know it’s an exaggeration but it still feels true.

journeeg asked
I'm a sophomore in high school and I really want to be a Paramedic. I know that HOSA is a good club to join for going down that path,but are there any other things I can join that should help me out on my journey?

I am glad you are hoping to become a paramedic. Keep up your studies, set your goals, don’t be swayed and you will be a paramedic. For sure the sciences will help, HOSA is a good start also. Anatomy and physiology are great and there are some schools and college programs that allow seniors to begin taking EMT courses. Different areas have different rules but in the state of Texas you can get certified as an EMT and upon becoming 18 you can get your state certs. If you are really serious you can even try to pick up an EMT book, you can find some second hand ones at decent prices. Just make sure they are at least current in information. 

More and more I’m thinking the science aspect is important but we need more leaders. We need educated people in sciences and business leading the future of EMS. I would recommend you and anyone else looking into EMS as a career to take as many of those classes as well. 

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions feel free to let me know. Good luck out there.
