I made it back from the wilds of Penns Woods without much wear and tear. Before I left, I was informed that upon my return I would be trained as a First Responder. Considering what I do, I figured this would be more geared to working with Police and 911.
Boy! Was I ever wrong.
This is a Medical First Responder training. This is for accidents, serious injuries and worst case scenario type stuff. Which, again considering what I do for a living, may not be a bad idea. It's not your basic first aid training (which I had years ago during one day and promptly forgot). This is advanced stuff, and requires a lot of study on my part (It's actually a 48 hour course being done in 1 work week).
|Not me, but yes I ended up on the backboard eventually|
If something does happen, if something does go badly wrong it will be good to know that I have that training. That knowledge. Now I'm thinking more than ever that I need to find out where and when the next Road Guardian class will be held.
So give me a week. I need to concentrate on that and work on getting my life in some sort of order. I'll be back and tell you all about my trip to Pittsburgh and everything else. Just give me some time...there is some good stuff happening in May. Some good news on the horizon.
