the Crossover Podcast – Ep 85 – Florida Cry Baby

crossoverlogo300In this week’s episode, MC and HM talk about a Florida man (because, of course it’s Florida) having his picture sent out on the interwebs and the Florida agency taking some heat about it.

You can read the piece and, more importantly, see the photo here.

What do you think? Any issue posting this photo? Does the copy accompanying the photo matter?

Let the guys know in the comments!

BOLO

“I Can’t Breathe!” you keep using those words…

I don’t think they mean what you think that they mean. It has been a long time since I asked “You called 911…for this?” mainly because I moved on from that attitude and learned to embrace my inner adult.  No in a creepy way though.   Units dispatched for the 62 year old male, trouble […]

the Crossover Show – 84 – TN Bus Crash

In this week’s episode, HM and MC talk about the recent tragedy in Chattanooga, TN, in which six children lost their lives in a fatal bus crash. Please to keep in mind that this happened many hundreds of miles from CA, but has that ever stopped the guys from waxing philosophic and/or offering their insights […]

Happy 150th Anniversary San Francisco Fire Department!

On March 2nd, 1866, after the bustling gold rush port City of San Francisco had burned to the ground not once but twice, the California State Legislature approved “An Act to Establish a Paid Fire Department for the City and County of San Francisco.” Multiple volunteer companies were in place but had not been able […]

Thank You For Your Service?

This Thanksgiving it is important to reflect on what we are thankful for and what we take for granted. “Thank you for your service.” We hear this term a lot in recent years as we see more and more soldiers coming home from serving abroad.  It carries with it a sense of honor that someone […]

A Complete Secondary Assessment

That’s what our policies require and it makes perfect sense.  A complete secondary assessment to rule out all known causes of illness or injury to allow providers to make a good faith report of condition to the patient to inform their decision.  We have tools and education to perform this task and it really isn’t […]

the Crossover Episode 81 – Let’s Talk Politics!

In this week’s episode, HM and MC talk politics! You know, that thing no one’s supposed to talk about. (Stay tuned…because next week they’re gonna talk religion!) #Sarcasm Although, listen to the show and find out why that would not be as totally shocking as you hope it would be! The guys discuss the outcome of the […]

Aircraft skids off runway, rescue task force ill equipped

A recent conference guide arrived in my email inbox. 7 of 11 EMS courses listed were on active shooter.  That is not a Slushie joke. As you know I have long believed that Law Enforcement Integration training should be standard for Fire and EMS.  We train on Hazardous Materials Awareness, Swift Water, confined space and […]

Crossover Show – Ep 79 – Do we need so much active shooter training?

In this episode, MC and HM talk about HM’s recent trip to Nashville for Firehouse Expo and one of the presentations he attended. HM regales us all with what he learned about the need (or lack thereof) for tactical EMS in an active shooter scenario based upon the experiences of Florida responders during the Pulse […]

How to Ignore Everyone in the Room: Be an Intern

Just as my head was settling into the pillow after a Haz Mat call and much needed shower, the lights come on and the tones drop for the ever popular bystander diagnosis of “Possible heart attack.” As I move towards the buggy radio comes over the speaker in the large bays, “Control to units responding […]
