    Well, I know the type you are talking about. I found it very comical when a new EMT showed up to a stand by event with a full duty belt (the kind PD officers wear minus the firearm) and a full sized fanny pack that I swear to this day weighed in more than my ALS jump kit does . Oh yeah, he was a first resonder also. I once wore a trauma holster when I worked on the ambulance... but I kept taking it off and leaving it on the dash or in the back of the ride so I never had it when I needed it (onscene) so I switched to a small fanny pack that is the norm for almost all fire medics and emts here in the valley (and I still leave it on the rig on most calls ).

    From a recovered woo woo, a lot of us go through that batman ems utility belt phase where we HAVE to have EVERYTHING right with us or we felt like we were a pox on the ems community. Don't you know that if we have EVERYTHING right THEN right THERE that we were just the bomb, medics would love us, cherubs would sing, the clouds would part and we would SAVE the world? After one to many times of forgetting my "pouch" when we would get a call while I was in the bathroom, I ditched it and now I just take what I need from the rookie.
    By the way, didn't Rickey Responder and the Woo Woos open for Elvis???????

    Hi Waterboy620:

    I was there just killing time for a while. My Fiancee is a Postmaster in East Texas and she had to go to the district office in Coppel for a meeting.

    I never ate there, but I heard it was good. Next time I'll have to try it.

    Keep it safe.

    Hey emsbrando, thats the store I got it at. The all mighty Bass Pro Shop. Have you been to the steak resturant there? Its very good but kinda expensive. They also brew their own beer. Beer, guns, dead animal heads, bass boats....its a redneck walmart. As if walmart wasnt redneck alredy.

    She probably left the belt pouch for her lifepak-12 at home.

    Hey Adam, we have a temple of fishing here in Texas. It is near the Grapevine Mills Mall in Coppell. It's a pretty big store.

    Funny story but I asked myself why make fun of the guy on your shift with all the toys?You say you had to ask him for a flashlight?I suppose you say that about us guys with the truckie belts and extra lights We only carry them so you guys can ask us to borrow them you know the extra light the extra axe.But then I got to thinkin now that you have one of these no all your buddies(well former buddies welcome to the woo woo squad) will ask you for your extra lights
    But the heavy gal with the uniform and all blows my mind! Like the bus doesnt come with all that stuff anyways.Plus love the blood pressure cuff story.
    Well anyhow have fun and no you didnt make me mad I could care less lol I deal with some of these guys on a daily basis(we have a ESDA unit nearby )

    That's alot of stuff to carry on her person. She left one thing out though. Knew a guy who carried a BP cuff in a pouch on his belt and would hang the gauge on either his collar or his lapel for all the world to see! I found that to be amazing!!!
