    It happens....There was a guy who dropped dead at work around here about 2 years ago.
    They now have a smoking bench outside the base in honor of him..

    Exactly 1 in a million? If this isn't a precise statistical analysis, it doesn't need to be in the story.

    Do you have a better or worse chance of survival if something happens to you on the job?

    On one hand, you're in an ambulance with another guy trained to save you. Everything you need is right there. However, one of the two paramedics in the area (yourself) is incapacitated, and there's the possibility the other is preoccupied. This post probably belongs in the ponderings thread.

    most codes...we try to have 3 people working in the back of the bus..then of course, there are radios....
    Protocols call for 5 people to work a code....but try fitting 5 people in the back of a moving ambulance working on a patient.

    This is pretty vanilla.

    because if they have a heart attack or stroke out at work, they're already in an ambulance

    Not a lot we can do for strokes (at least where I work) just O-2 and transport with a healthy injection of diesel.

    Strokes and aneurysms scare me more than pretty much anything else.

    I know it's a decent movie, but I have a lot of stuff to watch. So it just adds more to that never-ending list of stuff to watch.

    This is mind bending. Like having a tattoo of a butt with a butt-shaped tattoo placed on your butt.
