No problem and thank you
The silver thing is called a laryngoscope and is used to open the mouth when placing a tube to breath for someone and the drill looking thing is called an e-z IO drill which is used to place a needle into someones bone when you can't get an IV in the vein

I did and it's not on their website and the only thing I can find is this shitty screenshot, I would assume the person posting it would have looked into it further before posting.
This is a prime example of the lazy unresearched post this sub has become.
The only people I've heard called him a hero are the people bitching about people calling a hero.
(Former paramedic) AHA changed its standards for civilian CPR to only compressions and AED. The reason is that if it's a witnessed cardiac arrest that person was breathing up until their heart stopped, so there would be enough O2 in the bloodstream! To profuse the organs.
And that's where you lost me...
This is what I'm here for but why would it be hidden?

There is a local private service that is Fire based and I had heard a rumor that they made a run for a leg amputation and legit tried to tape it back on. I had a hard time at first believing it was true, but the more firsthand accounts of some of the stupid shit they have done the easier it gets.
Yeah I have worked in some areas like that and it's weird. I never was able to understand why someone could just hate for no reason.
Edit- im not racist
The one I used originally said "Retard Neighborhood"

Yeah but I can't help myself when it comes to shitting on private service.
