More HazMat for EMS – Think it can’t happen?

I just came across this: http://www.dangerouslaboratories.org/radscout.html

It’s the story of a 15yo Boy Scout who tried to build a nuclear fusion reactor in his mother’s shed. He didn’t succeed in creating sustained cold fusion, but he did create enough fissile and radioactive material that the EPA had to come in and activate the National Radiological Emergency Plan.

He contaminated more than a city block with radiation and radioactive particles.

Favorite line from the story: “David earned a merit badge in Atomic Energy in May 1991, five months shy of his 15th birthday. By now, though, he had grander ambitions.”

I am a paramedic trying to advance the idea that the Emergency Medical Services can be made into the profession that we all want it, need it, and know it deserves to be.
