Fake UK Paramedic Had His Own Ambulance — (EMSResponder.com)
A man who dreamed of being a paramedic lived out his fantasy with his own ambulance, medical equipment, uniforms and fake qualifications.
But 22-year-old Ryan Nurse had little more knowledge than a first-aider, a court heard.
He worked as a care assistant at an old people's home where he told staff he was a qualified paramedic and boasted that he had been first on the scene at several high-profile incidents.
His lies were uncovered when a company boss became suspicious about claims made in a job application.
When police raided the house in Cowes, Isle of Wight, where he lived with his mother, they found uniforms, fake medical certificates, prescription-only medicine and equipment for invasive procedures.
Nurse pleaded guilty at Isle of Wight Crown Court to charges of deception and was given a six-month suspended jail sentence. Judge Andrew Barnett described him as a pathetic Walter Mitty character. "He lived in a make-believe world, but thankfully it did not result in anyone suffering from his treatment."
"Each worker carried his sword strapped to his side." Nehemiah 4:18
Guns Save Lives. Paramedics Save Lives. But...
Paramedics With Guns Scare People!

Wow. I've known some EMS squirrels in my time, but that takes the cake.
Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

Seems like it would be easier just to go to school and become a real medic.

Did the ambulance have special plates to stop .338 rounds?
Where did he hide his rockets I wonder?
Reminds me of time's I've heard guys talking about their spec ops experiences in the Corps while on leave.
