Sean Eddy

My name is Sean Eddy and this is my place to talk, complain, rant, and spend countless hours on my days off. I have been working in EMS since 2003 and became a paramedic in 2005. I live and work in Southern California and someday hope to get the hell out of here! I recently moved to Northern Texas and I couldn’t be any happier!

I’m currently working as a paramedic at a rural ambulance service and part-time at a large children’s hopsital. On my days off I enjoy playing music, working out, shooting and just having a good time. I have 2 beautiful daughters and an amazing woman in my life.

I created this blog because I love to write and I enjoy interacting with people from around the globe. I also enjoy the occasional debate. I am a very opinionated and open person. I welcome all compliments, suggestions, arguments and hate mail.

A little more about my background:

Before working in EMS, I worked in politics and with computers. I started my EMS career working for a “mom and pop” ambulance service in Central California. I worked there as an EMT-Basic for 2 years. We provided exclusive ALS 911 coverage for several rural communities. It was a very interesting start to my career to say the least.  I learned a lot about EMS and what it’s like to have to improvise when you don’t have the resources of working in a metropolitan area.

After I turned 21, I started a new job working for a much larger ambulance service in Southern California which covers  a variety of metropolitan and rural communities. 3 months after I started work there, I was accepted into paramedic school. After paramedic school, I worked in the field for a couple years before being promoted to Field Supervisor.

Shortly after my promotion, I decided to take my experiences and write about them. I started this blog about a year later and continue to try and provide interesting, funny and hopefully informative material for everyone to read.

After 3 1/2 years as a field supervisor I left my management job and returned to the field. I’m now focusing on education and simply enjoying life. I recently moved to Texas and I’m taking my career in directions that I never imagined.

Disclaimer:

On several occasions, I make references to “calls” or “scenarios”. Some of these stories include facts from several different calls that I have actually run, however most are made up. I do not reveal personal information regarding any patients that I come in contact with. Pertinent details that could possibly lead to the identity of the patients or their scenario are significantly changed.

My blog is here for entertainment and educational purposes only.

As frequently mentioned, I always welcome debate, compliments, hate mail or any conversation. I read my e-mail several times a day and always respond promptly. Please feel free to e-mail me for any reason.
