This seems to be the current hot topic in EMS. It’s easy to see why since the frequency of active shooter incidents has increased (slightly), as has the hysteria around them. Harsh word, hysteria, but it’s accurate. More importantly, the nature of active shooter incidents has changed from a lone gun man shooting up a […]
Somehow I managed to fix the embed of Day by Day at the top of the blog. I’m not really sure how, but it’s back. That ugly empty space has been haunting me for many weeks. I expect that the management will be updating the vintage look of the blog in the near future. At […]
The technical glitches that have attended our migration to the new server appear to have been sorted out. My thanks go to the new management for working through the problems getting me up and running. While the blog appeared to be fine to visitors, I was not able to get to the Dashboard to approve […]
That’s if we were ever gone. The blog itself seems to have been viewable throughout the transition, but I wasn’t able to get to the back end for several hours. As you can see, now I can. A quite painless transition.

How’s that for subtle? This is a blatant plug for The Grey Man: Vignettes, by blogger and all around good guy Jim Curtis. AKA Old NFO. The link is to the paper version, there are also Kindle and Nook versions for those of you who have moved into the 21st Century. Be sure to head […]
I have no excuse that isn’t whiny and totally insufficient. September is Prostate Cancer Awareness month and I haven’t mentioned a word about it. Both Ambulance Driver and JayG have started their Kilted To Kick Cancer donation drives. I’d be more remiss if I didn’t mention Happy Medic and his efforts. All of them have […]
An old favorite of mine that shut down around the time of the 2008 election. A former career State Department employee, he provides great insights into the world of international diplomacy. I give Diplomad 2.0 to EMS Artifact thumbs up!
