I'm sort of a retired Combat Medic & Firefighter. I spent 6 years in the US Army as a Combat Medic (2 years in Vietnam) the rest in other parts of the world. 10 years as a Firefighter/Chief Medical Training Officer. And have been a team leader with the Red Cross Disaster Management for 15 years. Plus I am a First Aid /CPR Instructor Trainer with Heart & Stroke, Medic First Aid and Red Cross since 1982.
