Why this blog?

Hello there. I don't suppose you stumbled upon this place by accident. Not many people do.

You can call me the Browncoat EMT.

I'm going to answer a question for you:

Why did I start this blog?

This blog was started a while back because I lost a battle but kept on fighting. I learned the hard way that just because you're on the losing side, doesn't mean you're on the wrong side.

I used to blog as a normal guy with a name. I was happy with what I did, where I worked, and how I did it. Back then, not unlike today, I would constantly strive to improve myself as an EMT. I didn't think there would ever be a problem freely discussing my job and how I did it, as long as I never showed my employer in a bad light.

My employer thought differently. They let me know in so many words that they didn't like when I talked about how I did things what I would need to do to improve them. They thought that made them look bad. I thought it made the both of us look better. They asked me to take down my blog and delete hundreds of tweets. When I obliged them without a question, they fired me.

The Browncoat EMT came into existence less than six hours later. I didn't start this blog or twitter account or become who I am to keep fighting a war with them. I did it to pick up where I left off. I want to talk shop. I want to learn.

And dammit, I'm going to do that whatever it takes.
