I stumbled upon this forum and thought I'd register and say hi.
I am a HSE Rep/Medic for an offshore oil rig. I'm currently working in Scotland but will probably end up in Africa soon. I also have experience working in Brazil, India and the good ole USA.
I have been an EMT-I for about 2 years. I'll get my paramedic when my company decides to pay me to do it, or make it mandatory that all their HSE Reps become one.
I received my EMT training in New Orleans on the Westbank with West Jefferson Medical Center and really enjoyed the experience. While I probably don't get near the "excitement" that most of you guys get, I'd love to listen to a few war stories, and pick up a pointer or two.
Hope to hear from a few of you soon.
