Topic: The Club House / Hi

Hahaha thanks. I’ve never been arrested, and very rarely go into cells to begin with, excepting of course for emergencies or training. I will on occasion help out with training, simply because we’re a little short handed around here.

Ah thanks. I was beginning to wonder if y’all didn’t like EMTs around here.

Topic: Tech Talk / Walkies

Don’t you just love the walkies? Every time I get one and I have it for a week or so, it dies on me, or otherwise becomes useless except as a melee weapon. I think TacCom gives me the same walkie every couple of weeks.

Topic: A Broader View / opinions on self defense in corrections

@york_aw
I’m an EMT, but I have a very good knowledge of self-defense, disarming opponents, ect. Although I rarely have to get pyshical with an inmate, I have no issue putting them on the ground. I have a lot of good friends where I work, who will all take an inmate down for me. However, I’m an ex-Navy SEAL. I can handle them on my own (9/10 times). I think every single officer in corrections should have at least a basic knowledge of self defense. It could save your life.
As for a story, here’s one. This guy had got stabbed by another inmate. And myself and my partner were trying to patch him up so we could get him to Medical. Well he thought he was gonna be a bad a$$, pulled his own weapon out, and proceeded to threaten myself and my partner with it. Before I even had a chance to react, one of the Sergeants in the area tazed him and three other officers had him on the ground.

Topic: The Club House / Hi

So hi everybody, I just wanted to introduce myself. The name is Lee, and I’m an EMT for the Massachusetts Dept. of Corrections. I found this place because one of my coworkers said to check it out. Looking forward to being a part of the community :-)
