Ok, this isn't a question that can or should be answered with 'talk to your boss', 'Why did you take this job?', or anything that could change te circumstances around it. I'm I'm working as a medic now in a very rural, very back woods area with a extremely high poverty rate AND unemployeement rate. For a lack of a better term, it's the ghetto. It's interesting enough that a majority of the 911 calls are assaults and law enforcement is barely capable of showing up to assist EMS on calls. Most of the time you don't know you need them till you make scene. So as a medic, I can't carry (open or concealed). I'm not SUPPOSED to carry a knife bigger than what could be classified as a 'work or utility' knife. No pepper. No asp (well that's never really mentioned). Any ideas for personal protection that fits in these guidelines OR is concealable enough that I don't have to worry?
