Day 1 of a new cycle plus a half

5 day break was good, and we started a new year.  So, back to the East Side for B Shift, the morning started off before shift change on a EMS run, then back for some station duties and some work on the set of this old firehouse.  Got in some more halligan time removing that 1970's paneling, and a door with frame.  Only on the first day back can you wedge a piece of paneling against the wall, behind a piece of electrical conduit 10 feet off the ground.

After a bit of work on the this old firehouse set, off to EMS training.  Once again we are certified in the CPRrraa.  A few more runs for the Rescue Engine and "piggy bank", and we make it to the end of the shift.

Thursday and the B Shift 2 House crew is scattered, Ben and Joey to Station 1 to ride the "piggy bank", and the Lt to Station 3 "South-side House of Leisure and Haz Mat".  After mentioning "piggy bank" several times in this post and in the last, I feel I should point out that "piggy bank" is a term of endearment for the Medic unit.
Not too bad of a day, a couple runs, some training and a visit to Station 1, where Schaffer's Barbershop was open.  CJ has mad barber skills and makes a mean 2lb cheeseburger for the 2lb burger challenge.(never again...never again...)

 So back to the "South-side House of Leisure and Haz Mat" for a dinner of Cuban roast pork, with black beans and rice.  OH YEAH!!!

Here a little something motivational from The Fire Service Warrior.  Check out the required reading list he has on his blog too.
