I'll try this out
My buddy, at work, has had a blog for a couple years now and he keeps up with it on a pretty regular basis. I thought I would give it a shot and see if it's too much trouble. I figure I spend so much time on the computer as it is, I might as well do something that documents my wasted time.
I'm working at the fire department today. I've been at the Saint Albans Fire Dept. for 11 years. I've said since day one that I should keep a journal or log of all the calls and adventures that I've ran while at work. I guess today is as good a day as any to start.
In addition to the routine, day to day, things that we do(training, station cleaning etc...) I ran a few medical calls today. One interesting call happened when my cousin, Jeff, and I were returning from another call and one of the SAPD officers radioed us to come to his location. When we got there we found a young man who had a fish(treble) hook stuck in his leg. The barb end of the hook was all the way through his skin and sticking out the other side. So I ended up cutting the hook where it met the other two hooks and ran it the rest of the way out. The young man was 18 years old and was tough as a pine knot. He barely flenched. I was hoping Jeff got a picture but he was a little picture shy after he got jumped for taking some video footage of a fire he was on. Maybe next time.
