Hell, Dustin Titzman from san antonio fire dept here. Does anyone have any information on justifying wearing shorts on ems calls? I have 6 years in the dept, 2.5 of which in ems and the summers here are hot. I've worked at least a couple thousand ems calls now and cant find a reason why ankle to knee is any more dangerous than elbow to wrist in short sleeves, but our dept heads dont see it that way. Please help.
