cropped-51-patch.jpgWelcome to Medic 51. This is a blog where I will tell stories of my days in EMS, my views on the state of the profession, and perhaps some other musings that pop up in my warped mind. As for who I am, I am a retired paramedic who has moved on to other things, but who continues to be affected – in good and bad ways – by a career providing out of hospital medical care. I have worked in rural settings, urban settings, and everything in between. I have seen the bad, the ugly, and even seen some good.

The posts will sometimes be serious, sometimes humorous, sometimes sad. The stories I share are mine, and I simply want to keep them alive.

Thanks for reading and joining this wild ride!
