    I’m curious if there are any other first responders on here that prep.  It seems that it presents it’s own set of challenges.  I’d love to talk to others and share thoughts and ideas.

    Three years Army infantry. Retired 10 months ago from a metro police dept from a medium-sized city. Boy am I glad to be done with that. So, 25 years police officer, 5 years welfare fraud investigator (non-sworn) , 3 years Army.

    Also an NRA pistol instructor for all their pistol courses. Kind of funny (sad); work in a hospital now where I’m not allowed to even carry a pocket knife. Strange world.

    Was a medic in the army and EMT-B. Work in a hospital now though, changed career to nursing when I got out.

      Good for you!

      I tried the Nursing route, but rocked out after the second year. It was an accelerated course, 4 years in 2.5.
      After that, I knew I had to do something so EMT-B it was. For fun, I took NOLS Wilderness EMT course. That was awesome.
