Love this !!

 Really made me laugh out loud. You have to have a sense Of humour in a job like this, and its usually gallows humour. It’s a coping mechanism.   
The Client won’t see the patch, it’s for the enjoyment of the crew and if you’ve ever flown HEMS Air operationally, you will be smiling knowingly. (Probably)

After this past weekend’s successful “Staying Alive on 75” safety campaign, we thought we’d take you back a few years to 1959 and another group of troopers in Perry preparing for a weekend campaign to cut down on traffic violations and crashes. By the way, last weekend’s “Staying Alive on 75” was part of a five state law enforcement effort to make I-75 safer. We are pleased to note that there were no fatalities along the major highway running from Florida to Michigan during the campaign. No matter the year, the mission remains the same.

Partial amputation of the right wrist. I’m saying that because it’s just too deep for me to call a laceration. Cannot believe someone asked if it was fixed…when they are clearly in a medical facility….but what the hell. Kids these days. Yes it was fixed.
