Just been wondering about a few things relating to the equipment carried on paramedics belts.
I have seen some of the NSW paramedics carry scissors, a light (to check pupils), keys, ID and a radio system. I was wondering if that is the same for WA because I haven't seen a paramedic with all that on their belt yet. Do they only wear certain things to certain jobs?
Also.... I noticed the NSW paramedics have a radio system on their belt and then a curly cord attached to it that they clip onto their shoulder which has a radio at the top which they can talk into.
Do WA paramedics have this and if so how do they attach it to their shirts?? as I have noticed they don't have the shoulder pad things that say 'paramedic' like in NSW
